    Hi Experts

    I have upgraded my old laptop that has windows 7 ultimate and outlook 2010 used for work domain (IMAP not POP3) ,,,,,I backuped the outlook profile from this location below :

    C:\Users\nelson\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook

    Then I copied the backup to a new laptop that has windows 7 ultimate and outlook 2010 as well and to same location above.

    sending and receiving emails working fine but I lost the auto complete email addresses from the new laptop

    Wouldn't copy the complete profile should copy every thing (email,setting ,calender,,,,etc ) ?

    Thanks

    Auto complete files do not trafer over since the install is in a new location. You can try doing a search in your profile for *.nck as this is the file that holds the auto complete info. It is best not to rely on this feature for contacts.

    what he is saying is that it's best to use your contacts file as your contacts file, not the auto-complete feature as the contacts file.
