I'm using Outlook 2010 with a single POP3 account.
I have just switched to a new PST file and now Outlook is no longer suggests email addresses based on the single letters I type in.

I know that the old file with these cached addresses still exists but I don't know where to locate it.
It used to be with a NK2 extension.

Please help me :-)

NK2 no longer exists in 2010
The info is now stored in a mailbox folder called "Suggested Contacts"
Since you're using POP (not Exchange) the folder is stored in the PST.
I haven't tried it myself, but I suppose you could copy the contents of this folder from the old pst to the new pst...

Well... You could try exporting them to CSV, then import into NK2EDIT (3rd party freeware tool), then create an NK2 file and have Outlook import it using the procedure here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/980542

Hi

I have solved the problem my self.

Start by deleting "old" Suggested Contacts following this:

http://www.slickit.ca/2011/03/outlook-2010-auto-complete-cache.html

When this is done Microsoft provide a FIX-IT tool to import an old NK2 file.

Never mind, it's not a big deal. I overreacted a bit ;)
