1. 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:

a. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
b. Double-click Mail.
c. In the Mail Setup dialog box, click Show Profiles.

2. Click Start, and then click Run.

3. 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.

After the import is finished the .nk2 gets renamed with an . file name extension on the first start of Outlook 2010. Therefore, if you try to re-import the .nk2 file, remove the . file name extension.

Outlook 2010 no longer uses this file.

Please read this article from Microsoft on how to import to new format.

The .NK2 file is in
C:\Documents and Settings\[User Profile]\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook

I am assuming you went into 2003 and went to import export, exported the mailbox as a .pst (making sure to select the subfolders checkbox)

Then take that .PST and in Outlook 2010 click the "File" tab at the top, then "Open" on the upper left side.  Under there is the "Import" option.  Then it should be familiar, import from another program or file, then outlook data file (.pst), I like to replacethe duplicates and import it into the same folder.
