    autofillist empty? (Outlook XP dutch)

    Goodmorning,

    I have a very disappointed user... I did something he didn't like. :-p
    He had a couple of warningmessages when he started outlook. So, what did I do: I threw away his outlook profile and gave him a fresh one.
    With this action I took away his autofillist in a new mail. And because he didn't store his mailadresses in his contacts (as any other SHOULD do...) he now lost a big lot of adresses. Is there a way to find this list? I thought it was a *.nck list, but I can't find one?

    Please please help me!

    Many thanks in advance,
    Daphne

    Hi Daphne,

    In Outlook 2002 (XP), the file has extension .nk2. Look in the folder Cocuments and Settings<username>Application DataMicrosoftOutlook.

    Note: Application Data is a hidden folder, so you must show hidden files and folders in Windows Explorer to be able to see it.

    And recommend him urgently to start filling his Contacts folder. <img src=/S/wink.gif border=0 alt=wink width=15 height=15>

    Thanks!!! And er... can you tell him to fill his contacts? (I would'nt dare it! :-p)

    How can I give him his autofillist back? It is in the right location (I made a copy to be sure!) but I can't seem to get it activated?

    Many thanks in advance!

    Outlook was probably the name of the old profile - it is the generic default profile name. Try renaming the .nk2 file to use the name of the new profile. So for example if the new Outlook profile you created is named MyMail, rename the file to MyMail.nk2.
