nk2 / suggest names for outlook?
Posted on 2014-10-03
I moved someone from xp / outlook express to win 8.1 / outlook 2010.
I forgot to bring over the nk2 file (weird - they'd use outlook express for mail, but contacts were in a PST, NOT in a WAB file)
I imported that old PST into the new machines' PST and the contacts are all in the new machine.
Anyway, now when they start typing email addresses, it doesn't suggest names in that window that pops up under the to line. (that's the NK2 list, right?) Even after sending to someone, if I send again to that person, it doesn't suggest that name as I start typing it (just making a new NK2 from scratch?).
I could pull off the old NK2 from the old machine and there's a command to have it suck in the nk2 into the PST?
Is there a way to just have it use all the contacts as the suggested email addresses right from scratch? so I don't have to fire up the old machine and get the nk2 and don't have to send a test email to all contacts... although that didn't work for that first address anyway.)
