How do I export/import Outlook 2003 email address 'hints'?

I'm migrating a user from an old desktop to a laptop. They seem to have not been using Outlook's address book, but rather relying on the 'hints' that pop up when  you begin typing an email address on a new email.

These did not get copied when I did an export/import of the root "Personal Folders" with all sub directories included.

I'm not sure where to go from there, or what the proper name for that feature even is.

Hi, mnewmanSTC.

The proper name is the Nickname file.  The file name is Outlook.NK2.  You'll find it in the folder c:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook.  This is under a hidden folder, so be sure to turn on the ability to see hidden files and folders in Windows Explorer.

The target machine was Vista, so the location of the App Directory was elsewhere, but copying and renaming the .NK2 from the host machine solved the issue.

Thanks for the speedy response.
