  • Another option, built-in option to Office 2010;  PS (We also use NK2Edit (great products from NirSoft) in previous versions of Outlook to delete unwanted email addresses--Outlook 2010 can do this by right=clicking the email address in the auto complete list, and choosing the 'x')

    Close Outlook 2010

    Place *.nk2 file into %appdata%\Roaming\Microsoft\Outlook

    Rename to same name as current user email profile and keep .nk2 extension

    From Run command prompt: Outlook /importnk2

    Outlook automatically imports current email profile named .nk2 file into the current location of the stream file (even if I do not know its name nor location).

    Outlook also opens after the import.

    (We use this method, successfully, at my company)

    'LOVE' multiple ways of doing things. :)

    Thanks for your tip. I will be using it also.
