AutoComplete Fuctionality within Outlook 2010

I am confused about how the new style AutoComplete / nickname cache works within Outlook 2010 when connected to an Exchange server. Could someone confirm or expand on this.

Here is my problem.

The article from Microsoft kb 980542 says that the information for AutoComplete is stored in a hidden file on the Exchange file store. This is recreated when Outlook 2010 is started.

Elsewhere (including in EE) there is a description of the location of the Stream_Autocomplete_xxx file location and how to move this to another machine. This sounds like a local file containing all the entries just like the old NK2 file format.

I want to have two PCs running Outlook 2010 linked to the same Exchange account and with the same AutoComplete lists - do I have to keep moving the Stream_Autocomplete between the two machines to achieve this ?

Many thanks, Dave

No you don't need to keep moving the file.

Create the autostream file or new profile on one version of Outlook, make sure its working well. Be sure to close and reopen Outlook for changes to be processed and ensure its working locally. After go and configure Outlook on the second machine, it will then display the same cached entries.
