HI experts

I have a laptop which had an outlook 2007 and I upgraded him to outlook 2010
The thing is now that every time I want to send an email, I start to type the contact name but all I see is the email addresses instead of the display name (which is now the email address)
Is there any way or a tool to set the display name right?

Hi there,

it seems to me that your nk2-file is corrupt.
Can you delete it (or rename it) - when Outlook is closed and try "rebuilding" your cache.

Can you then check whether the new nk2-cache-file still only reports the email address?

Hi MichaelVH

The nk2 file has changed his name and now is: "outlook.nk2.old"
Do you think i should rename him and try to use it ?

IT Group,

if outlook.nk2.old is indeed your "old" nk2-file than you could try to do that, yes.
