Copy Outlook AutoComplete to Another Computer

Outlook remembers names and addresses you type, this feature is called AutoComplete. When you move to a new computer this is lost, but it can be backed up and moved.

The NK2 file is where these addresses are stored. You can back them up simply by copying the file from the old PC to the same location on the new PC. This file is named based on the profile, eg if my profile name was Daniel, and my logon ID was dmundy, then it would be stored in:

C:\Documents and Settings\dmundy\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook\Daniel.nk2

If you have changed the name of the Outlook profile, remember to rename the file.
