Migrating Outlook Auto-complete list …

I recently moved an office from a SBS Server 2003 domain to our Server 2003 domain. As a result the users ended up with new Windows profiles on their pc’s. In turn this also meant a new Outlook profile. Some of these people wanted their Auto-complete lists to come with them. This is reasonably easy with Office 2003 as the list is kept in a .NK2 file on their pc. However, Office 2007/2010 keep this list on the Exchange server. After some searching i found a tool called NK2Edit. Here is a link:

Here are some instructions for importing an Office 2003 NK2 list into Outlook 2010:
