How do I view all my contacts entered into my .nk2 file in Outlook 2007

Posted on 2009-06-30

We are using Exchange Server 2003 for our e-mail collection and Outlook 2007 for e-mail client.  When I switched everyone over I didn't realize that the autocomplete function did not carry over when I created a new profile and then imported (what I thought was everything) the old profile's information.  We have been adding names to our .nk2 files since the switch out and now it seems we have reached our limit of 1000 entries.  Is there a way to view the list without having to type the first letter of a person's address into the TO: box?  It would be most helpful if we could have a list of names to pick and choose who stays or goes.

It's free and should show you what you want.

Thanks for the suggestion however when I attempt to install on Vista Business SP2 it stops and gives the following error message.  "Component 'MSFLXGRD.OCX' or one of its dependencies not correctly registered: a file is missing or invalid."  Where do I go from here?

OK I lied.  

I'm not finding a list of compatible OSes for the nk2 editor I linked to, but have found another that has been updated this year, and should allow for installation on Vista Bus.
