How can I import auto-complete email to Outlook 2011 for Mac?

Craig December 7, 2011

Does anybody know how to import the auto complete emails from PC Outlook 2007 to Mac Outlook 2011? This is not the same as auto complete for words, but what happens when we begin to type in an email in Outlook and it shows us a list of emails to choose from. I imported contacts fine but don’t know how to do this. Sorry for the long winded question but want to avoid confusion.

    import 'Outlook.nk2
    The .nk2 file contains all the auto complete addresses for outlook in windows and is located in
    Windows XP:- C: drive:Documents and Settingsuser nameApplication DataMicrosoftOutlook.
    Windows Vista/7:- C: drive: usersuser nameAppDataRoamingMicrosoftOutlook
    You can copy the .nk2 file from the above locations.

    or use this soft the nk2 editor
    Install it> open the nk2.exe file> select all contacts> click on file> save selected items > in save as type choose CSV> ok
    Use this CSV format and then you can import it office 2011

    on MAC
    You will observe that the CSV file if imported directly, will not be displaying the desired information in Mac Outlook, under contacts. So you need to edit the CSV file, and delete all other fields except the "Name" and "Email Address" fields. Once the CSV file is edited, import it in Outlook for Mac using the Import option. You will now find all the contacts from the NK2 file under a new contact list in Mac Outlook.

    or you can instal thunderbird on both computers in windows you can import contacts as LDIF, then the file you add it on usb key and then transfer to MAC and ask thunderbird to import LDIF then will go to MAC office.
