Microsoft BPOS Creating identical .NK2 file

Hi, we are in the midst of planning our mail migration to BPOS. I am attempting to plan our steps for cutover day, and one of the things is keeping the user's NK2 mail cache.

Here are the steps i follow:

1. Setup users BPOS account using MS sign in tool
2. Log into outlook, create test message.
3. Log out of outlook, confirm username@microsoftmaildomain.com.nk2 file is created in appropriate location (I have tested on Windows 7 as well as XP)
4. Copy oldmailprofile.nk2 to another location
5. Delete username@microsoftmaildomain.com.nk2
6. Rename oldmailprofile.nk2 to username@microsoftmaildomain.com.nk2
7. Copy username@microsoftmaildomain.nk2 to appropriate location
8. Log onto username@microsoftmaildomain.com mail profile
9. Start typing message, NOTHING
10. Look in folder, there are now TWO files entitled user@microsoftmaildomain.com.NK2 files

I have confirmed hidden files are being shown, and extensions are not being hidden. I have looked in a command prompt and there are TWO identically named files in the same folder.

Any ideas?

We didn't have time to fight with this. We're using a tool called Nk2edit to merge NK2 files rather than renaming.

If you start using (sending few more emails) the Outlook generated NK2 file...do you see the increase in the NK2 file-size?

IMO, E2010 store all of the NK2 files @ the mailbox properties
