Convert Outlook 2016 AutoCompletes to CSV?

LiquidRetro 12,661 4,824 May 11, 2016 at 03:01 PM
I have a new user (acquisition) who has never put anyone they have ever emailed in as a contact. They rely upon the "AutoComplete" and this is a problem for more than one reason. I need to mine all of the addresses out of autocomplete to send an announcement to everyone.

I have been searching around and found http://www.msoutlook.info/questio...tocomplete which I was hopeful about but the MSG message it exports doesn't have any email addresses visible when you open it and when you open it in a text editor it's all in unledgible machine code.

So can this be done? If so how?

Only a partial solution, but I like to tie an email client to an ldap directory. It's nice to be able to easily look up any (internal) address on the fly.

What version of outlook?

I would look into NK2Edit which he linked. It works on Office 2010 and 2013 which don't use nk2 files either. It doesn't officially support 2016 but it may work as I believe it stores auto complete entries similarly to 2013.

NK2Edit can export data, I don't know if it will work for you or not. It's the best tool I found in < 2min. It's not free for commercial use (but it is cheap) but you can try it free for 14 days.

My other thought was I wonder if there's a way to do it server side like gmail does building it out from messages you've sent and received. This wouldn't be the exact same list. You can also integrate a CRM with an ldap server and outlook.

MK2Edit looks like it will work, at least on my machine with Outlook 2016.

If it doesn't for some reason there's also http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/outl...stics.html which you could use to rebuild a similar list based on the mailbox contents.
