We just upgraded from Outlook 2007 to Outlook 2010 and have our old PST fully functional, but we still lack 2 things:

- have all our 'Auto-Complete' emails addresses
- and have all our signatures

Please advice.

Hi.

This is not windows 8 specific, so you should move it or have a mod move it to another topic area: outlook.

Have a look at http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/outlook_nk2_autocomplete.html - that utility can at least export the autocomplete entries...says nothing about re-import, though.

For AutoComplete :
The file is an NK2 file that is located in the hidden folder of the users folder
C:\Users\User\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Outlook\Outlook.NK2 (the thumbnail will have a nice picture)

If you have changed the users mail profile from the default one it maybe called something other than Outlook.NK2 just look for the recently modified NK2 file.

Copy and paste this file to the same location on the new computer.

Please not the NK2 is specific to the user on that PC.

Hope that helps!

I have just taken a quick look and Signatures are nearly in the same place:

C:\Users\user\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Signatures

Just copy and paste the one out of there and move it to your new computer.
