Outlook 2010 address history

Have you moved computers and lost your address history? You know the history when you start typing an address and a list drops down to show you all the email addresses that match?

Well there’s a file, the <profilename>.NK2 file that needs to be loaded.

You have to copy it from your old location

  1. XP:
    • drive:\Documents and Settings\user name\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook.
  2. Vista and above:
    •  Drive:\Users\Username\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Outlook

Find the NK2 file and copy it to the new location

Then in a command prompt type: outlook.exe /importnk2


This came from AutoCompleteNames and Import Nk2 Files into Outlook 2010
