Rebuild Outlook 2013 autocomplete cache from sent items.

I had to move a PST from one exchange 2013 server to another.
In the process i realized the auto complete was not moved over.
I have no stream.dat or NK2 file to fall back on.

Does anyone have a working powershell script (or can modify one)
that takes email addresses from the sent folder and copies them to
the auto-complete cache?

I found this one but it doesn't work for Outlook 2013, only 2010. I tried modifying it
without success.

I will try your solution but I would prefer a power-shell script if possible. The one I posted a link to works great, I just need it for Outlook 2013.

Auto complete isn't stored in a separate file, it is stored in the mailbox.
Therefore moving the mailbox between servers should work correctly, no script etc required.

Do you see a Suggested Contacts folder in the mailbox?

Simon,

I exported the exchange mailbox using powershell and imported it by hand using outlook.
I was getting "Failed PST import" using exchange ECP so I went the manual route.

Suggested contacts seem to have been removed from Outlook 2013.

Wasn't able to get this using powershell for Outlook 2013.
