Outlook 2010 does not use or support .NK2 file for storing remembered email addresses (nicknames).
How is this done now? And can it be edited like before?
Thanks, Experts.

    Outlook 2010 uses a stream_autocomplete file.  See here for an example:

    With just Outlook, you can clear it (to start again), but not edit it.

    Thanks, Expert.
    The provided links were extremely useful.
    Although unable to directly edit, I now have a way to edit an NK2 file before importing into Outlook 2010.
