The addresses that pad out text as you type it is stored in Nickname, (nk2 files) as follows:

Pre Outlook 2007: C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook\*.nk2
Outlook 2007: C:\users\username\appdata\roaming\microsoft\outlook\*.nk2
May require files to be unhidden.

To View/Edit NK2 Files try NK2.info which is a free utility see: www.nk2.info.
