Outlook AutoText/AutoComplete of E-Mail Address - Where is it saved?

We are in the process of switching a couple people out and I wanted to know if there is any way to save their AutoText/AutoComplete feature in Outlook 2003 (where when they type a few letters of the recipient's e-mail address if it has been cached after you enter it the first time)? Is it stored in any cache file by chance?

drive:\Documents and Settings\user name\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook.

and look for the username with the username.nk2

Greetings RTM2007 !

The names are kept in a NK2 file.  With Outlook close, search for *.NK2 and copy it to new computer.

.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
This is autocomplete (for email address) but not autotext.
