"suggested contacts" in Outlook 2010 won't move to address cache

I am trying to copy the address cache from one profile to another in Outlook 2010. I understand that 2010 no longer uses the .nk2 file and instead uses "Suggested Contacts". I have imported the "Suggested Contacts" into the destination folder, but the contacts still do not show up in a new message address bar (typing 'D' should bring up all addresses starting with 'D', it does not). There is no .nk2 file available in the Outlook folder. How can I force the contacts into the "address cache"?

Any thoughts?

1 - Open the old NK2 file with the program NK2VIEW.
 2 - With the list opened within NK2VIEW let only the colunm of E-Mail showed.
 3 - Select the entire colunm and COPY
 4 - Open a NEW MESSAGE in the outlook 2010
 5 - Paste the list and check names
 6 - Done, all mails listed are now in the Suggested Contacts in the Outlook
 2010 !
 - Is not necessary to send the message.

As stated in the question, there is no old .nk2 file because the original account was also in 2010.

Oh in that case take all your contacts paste into the to field and save as a draft then delete the draft, but this will only work for personal contacts you can't do anything about global contacts
