Microsoft Outlook 2007 - Email Address

All our PC's in the office use Microsoft Outlook 2007, running with Windows XP.

Microsoft Outlook 2007, has feature whereby it remembers the email address once you have typed it in the "To Box". When the user types the first few letters of the Email address, Outlook gives a list of a few email address used before, so that the user can select the Email address which is correct.

I wanted to know how I can secure the file that holds this information, so that when a new installation is done on the users PC, I can restore this feature, it would be most useful for our users, rather than buliding the database again from scratch of Email address.

The file you are looking for which stores this information is the NK2 file. It is situated by default in the user's Outlook profile, at the following location: C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook\(profile-name).NK2.

You simply need to take a copy of that file, and restore it to the same location if a user's PC is reinstalled.

Please be aware that the 'Application Data' folder is a hidden folder; you therefore need to enable the 'Show hidden files and folders' setting in Tools > Folder Options > 'View' tab in order to see and access it.
