Can a global address list be transferred from one Exchange Server to another?

I just completed an Active Directory and Email migration, or actually merger between two companies.  The company that moved domains has new mailboxes setup on the new exchange server.  Is it possible to recover the email address history (You know, when you type in an address you've typed before, it automatically pops up, even if it's not in your contact list), and also move the old Global Address list and merge it with the one on the new server?????

    You may be able to export it and then import it to the new server. Here are some links that may help.
    You may also be able to use the CSVDE command line tool.

    G'day mate.  I think the previous list of email address's (in outlook when you type a letter and the drop down appears with previous address's) is actually stored in each users

    C:\Documents and Settings\%username%\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook\Outlook.NK2

    If you copy the outlook.NK@ file into the new profile path for the user they will get all their old address's they've sent to.  Hope that helps
