It shows only some of the names, some of the time. Is there a way to correct it?
The workstation is Win xp pr sp3, and it works in front of Exchange 2007.

No, I don't think you can correct it. You can only delete it and let it rebuild...

Hi!

Here is a repair tool:

Here is a great tool to populate the NK2 file using the addresses in your Sent Items folder.
http://nk2.emenems.net/

Both are Free!

Thanks!

No problem on re-opening the ticket and re-assigning points. Have you tried the tools yet? From what I was reading, they don't repai your NJ2 file, they just allow you to export from it and then you resent a message to all those recipients to update the nk2 file... Maybe I didn't read enough.

From what i see this tool (http://repair-outlook-autocomplete.blogspot.com/) allows you to recover all the NK2 contents, which is very useful, but i haven't tried it yet.

Any way - no need to fight here ;-) everyone will get there share
