Default Importing personal contacts

Please Login to Remove!

I have Outlook 2003 both at home (on a personal PC) and at work on my office PC. As I am fully enjoying the contacts on my Blackberry, I thought I would export my home contacts, import them into my work pc ( with category=Personal) and let them sync back to the Blackberry.

It worked PERFECTLY, and I can even Filter if I want.

I noticed however that I am missing perhaps a dozen or so email addresses. These are ones that pop up as I start composing the To field on my home Outllook ( but were never added as Contacts).

Is there a way to get a lsiting of what these are. Must be some sort of history file...

Many thanks

MM

If they are only popping up when you are composing an Outlook email, then that's the 'history' of Outlook working for you.... I am 99.9999% sure they are nowhere in your Address Book. I have that happen all the time at work - I send emails to all of my BB users, so I can just start typing their name and it will pop up. However, none of them are in my personal address book.

Exactly my problem....but that history file must exist somewhere..as Outllook uses it every time....must be a way to find it (even if hidden)


UPDATE: I may have found a solution. See: http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/ou...CL100626971033

Absolute success.

The history file is from the autocomplete feature, which creates a nickname file with a NK2 extentions. There are third party tools to view and manage NK2 files. I found one here : NK2View - View Outlook .NK2 AutoComplete Information which allows me to extract the names and addresses.

Yay!

Nice, good find! I can use this one at work as I have had people ask me about it.
