Import into Outlook Eudora autofill cache

I have a client using Eudora (latest ver), last night I moved him to Outook (in order to take advantage of Exchange Server).  He is upset because Outlook doesn't auto-complete email addresses as he types them the way Eudora does.  I believe Outlook will build up an autofill cache over time, but he wants it now.  Is it possible to extract Eudora's autofill table and import it into Outlook?  Where is this autofill data stored?  He now wants to move back to Eudora, which will put a big roadblock to rest of project...

Greetings, billbeazley69 !

Eudora autofill cache is not accessible.  Outlook autofill cache is located in NK2 file.  It includes both the contacts list and the names that you type in.  So while Outlook autofill may not contain all the NK2 names, it does contain the contacts list.

Best wishes!

if Outlook autofill cache includes the contacts list, why doesn't it automatically fill the names as he types?  On my own Outlook autofill only seems to offer me autofill options of the addresses that I have actually send emails to in the past.  SO there is no way to get at the names in the Eudora cache?  Is the NK2 file editable?
