Copying Temporary e-mail addresses from the dropdown in Outlook 2003

Can the temporary e-mail addresses from the dropdown list in Outlook 2003 be saved to another computer?

My thought is once temporary files are purged, they're gone but was wondering if there was a way to save these and then restore them after the purging.

Thanks for your help!

Hello lkretzBK,

The names are kept in a NK2 file.  With Outlook close, search for *.NK2 and copy the file to same location in antoher computer..

In Windows XP, .NK2 file is located in
C:\Documents and Settings\\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.

In Windows Vista, file is located in C:\Users\\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Outlook

Hope this helps!
