Can I move the cached email addresses from the NK2 in OUTLOOK 2007 over to OWA, Exchange 2007

I have a user that worked remotely off of a VPN for years and used his OUTLOOK 2007 at home just as he did while he was in his office. His VPN appliance is now burned out and I have him set up using OWA webmail on our EXCHANGE 2007 server. His misses his cache of customers he has built up over the years and I am hoping there is a way for me to export the information out of his NK2 file and bring it into his browser so his addresses auto complete when he sends an email. Does anyone have any ideas?

You mentioned his VPN appliance burned out, what about VPN client software?  If he is the only user from that location, depending on the VPN host appliance probably supports it.  Then he can continue to use Outlook 2007.

hmmmm we do have a way of connecting via VPN without an appliance. That may be the way to go. He will not get his office phone back, but that is another issue. I like the suggestion and will try it
