  • Export New messages Contacts

    Hi all! Great Forum!

    I have a real basic question. In MS 2003-2007 when we are creating an e-mail, and then type some letter in the destination input, then a list with the contacts we usually use apears, starting by these letter.

    These contacts isn't contacts from Adreess Book, in fact my Adress Book is empty, and i have several e-mail adress in the list at the new Message Form.

    How can we export this list, for backup and import later?

    Here a screen-shot:

    Best Regards

    You need to backup your NK2 file which will be located in the following location.

    X:\Documents and Settings\%USERNAME%\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook

    X is where your profile is and %USERNAME% is your logon name.

      Also note that if you copy the NK2 file to a new profile, the name of the file must match the name of the profile
