you cannot import .nk2 file to the exchange server. it is a file that is stored locally on the client computer and it stores all the names that outlook has cached when "automatic name checking" and "suggest names" options are enabled.

You CAN import it into the user's address book - but you need 3rd party software to do so.  For example: http://ingressor.com/

Thanks for the reply rakesh
is their  any way i can import "automatic name checking" in to exchange as it was pain in bum to type every thing again so that exchange can learn from the scratch.
currently it was not listing names when type the 1st letter of the address .
just to let you know old outlook.nk2 is in the right location c:/ doc & set/ user/ appications/microsoft/outlook/

thanks

Hi Lee
i have already imported the address book in to exchange accounts  which does'nt have all the contacts i need ( i mean the once that appear from .nk2 when typing ) . so how  am i going to get these address appeares  as it was before when typing 1st letter in exchange.

Hi rakesh i have understood you answer but their should some kind of solution when you are migrating from outlook pop to outlook exchange. i can loose 546 KB size of nk2 as it has so many address which i dont have in my contacts. so their should be a way how i can get these visible in "automatic name checking" when typing the letter of the address.  Please advice are their any other solutions.

Thanks

what is the name of this nk2 file? and what is the name of the outlook profile?
if the names are different then rename the .nk2 file to the name of outlook profile.nk2 and place it in the location where outlook has stored its .nk2 file. take a backup of the nk2 file before doing anything with it.
after that start outlook and see if it picks it up.

Guys i found the solution
In the  Doccument and setting/user/ applications/microsoft/outlook

there are three files which are created by exchange profiles

Microsoft Outlook Internet setting.Fav
Microsoft Outlook Internet setting.NICK
Microsoft Outlook Internet setting.NK2

so what i have done is i have replaced Microsoft Outlook Internet setting.NK2 with old ouklook.nk2 from pop ( i mean renamed the outlook.nk2  as Microsoft Outlook Internet setting.NK2) and it work like a charm  !!!!!

Greate stuff.
