Outlook: Old Contacts Reference in new email

Posted on 2011-05-11

Last Modified: 2012-05-11
We setup a new computer and in the old outlook, you could start typing a contact in a new email and it would how contacts that correlate to what you are typing so you don't have to go find all those contacts. You get that after the first time you send that person an email right? Can we find that file and move it to the new computer so the person can quickly send emails as they did before or do you have to manually find it the first time for all the contacts all over again?

We are using Microsoft Outlook 2003 in a 2003 Server SBS domain with 2003 exchange.

The file you need is the Nk2 file located in:

C:\Documents and Settings\%username%\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook

The new machine is windows 7 and old is XP. So where do I put that file in Windows 7?
