Where is OWA Autocomplete data stored for the web browser access

Hi,

I have a user who has Office 2003 on XP.
I am upgrading him to Windows 7, but do not want to give him Office on there just yet.
I would like him to access his email Using OWA from IE10 or 11.

So far it works fine - except that I would like him to be able to use his Autocomplete in OWA.
I know I need to copy the .NK2 file over - but where so I put it so that he can automatically access from within his Browser?

Thanks

THe NK2 file is only for Outlook, not OWA, and it would normally live in his user profile area
e.g. C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Outlook. The name of file matches the profile name.

In OWA, the autocomplete information is actually stored in the mailbox on the Exchange server. This is so that it is accessible from any computer. It is not possible to import the NK2 file in to OWA.

So one has to build the cache for Autocomplete in OWA and there is no way of importing it from an NK2 file?

That is correct. The Autocomplete cache will be built up as he sends mails to different users.
