Hello zenworksb,

You need to move the nicknames from old profile to new profile. The names are kept in a NK2 file.  With Outlook close, search for *.NK2 and copy the file to the new profile location.

.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!

zenworksb,

If you change only the profile name, you can rename the nk2 file.  Backup the oldprofilename.nk2 first. Then rename it to newprofile.nk2 to leave in same location.
