How to collect all autocomplete email addresses in outlook and store them in contacts to export?

I will be likely stopping using MS Outlook soon and switching to Gmail.

How do I collect all autocomplete email addresses in outlook and store them in contacts to export as a csv? I know how to do the export to csv - I just don't know how to get all my autocompletes to the contact list list.

Thanks.

Greetings edwardt !

The names are kept in a NK2 file.  With Outlook close, search for *.NK2 and open with one of these editors
http://www.nk2.info/
or
http://www.ingressor.com/ingressor_products.htm

Move the emails to Excel spreadsheet and save it as CSV file.

.NK2 file is located in
C:\Documents and Settings\<user>\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook folder. It is a hidden file. Go to any folder and select Tools > Folders Options > View. Check "Show hidden files and folders".  Click OK.

Hope this helps, war1

Thanks for pointing out the file - the nk2.info unfortunately doesn't seem to work (run time error). Is there an in-Outlook method to get the data and export it or another free tool?

Thanks

Ed,

War1 put you right on it.  I have used both the suggested products effectively.  Here is another free tool you can try.

If that doesn't get if for you google for something like open .nk2 files.

Cheers

Nk2.info should work.  Make sure PST file is not write protected.

Thanks to both - the http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/outlook_nk2_autocomplete.html worked well, except I had to use their "to html" to copy it to a .csv format.
