I have a customer with an old computer all of his email addresses are only accessible from the auto complete memory. Is there a way to transfer that data onto a new computer with the same version of outlook?

It's an NK2 file under [Your Profile]\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook

You can copy over the nk2 file from the users profile path or use software like the one from nirsoft.

C:\Documents and Settings\user_name\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook

In the Outlook folder, look for a file with a .NK2 extension. This is the file that contains all of the autocomplete information. Copy that file and transfer it to the new computer.
Finally, go to the same location on the new computer as described above, namely, Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook and paste the .NK2 file there. Start Outlook and open a new email. When you start typing, all of your previous autocomplete addresses will show up. Enjoy!
