    .NICK replacement in Outlook XP ? (XP)

    Every now and then I get "bonus" suggestions for nicknames, and the nicknames just don't clean themselves up properly. They never have.

    In Outlook 2000 I would simply search my hard drive for the *.nick file and then delete it. Problem solved as Outlook would then gradually re-build the file. This works well.

    Except that I do not seem able to find the *.nick file in Outlook XP ! What is it's replacement ?

    The new name ends with a 2; it's some combination of a few of the letters in nick and 2. Maybe .nk2? Please post back with the answer when you find it.
