Autocomplete Outlook 2010

So i plan on upgrading a few machines from Outlook 2007 to Outlook 2010, and I read that the autocomplete email addresses are now stored on the server. I have a copy of my .nk2 file from Outlook 2007, can i still import this into Outlook 2010? I am not planning on upgrading Exchange yet, but where is this autocomplete information stored now on Exchange 07?

They are stored in the MBX in teh Suggested Contacts folder in Outlook. And the first time you launch 2010, after an upgrade, it will suck in the .NK2 file.

From the above link....

For example, if you are using a Microsoft Exchange account, the nickname cache is imported into a hidden message in the Exchange mailbox.

So yes....

ya what john says is true . i have tried that

we can import someone else nickname cache into our mailbox by doing the below steps
To import .nk2 files into Outlook 2010, follow these steps:
Make sure that the .nk2 file is in the following folder:
%appdata%\Microsoft\Outlook
Note The .nk2 file must have the same name as your current Outlook 2010 profile. By default, the profile name is "Outlook." To check the profile name, follow these steps:
Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
Double-click Mail.
In the Mail Setup dialog box, click Show Profiles.
Click Start, and then click Run.
In the Open box, type outlook.exe /importnk2, and then click OK. This should import the .nk2 file into the Outlook 2010 profile.

Note After you import the .nk2 file, the contents of the file are merged into the existing nickname cache that is currently stored in your mailbox.
Note The .nk2 file is renamed with a .old file name extension on the first start of Outlook 2010. Therefore, if you try to re-import the .nk2 file, remove the .old file name extension.
