HOWTO: Transfer outlook cache "to" field to new computer?

How to transfer outlook cache to a new computer?

I always forget this information so I blog it here and share to the world.

You just need to copy one file e.g. outlook.nk2 to your new computer and you will have your outlook cache file again.

Where to find the outlook.nk2 file?
The default location should be in your profile Outlook folder, here's the example path.
c:\Documents and Settings\loginname\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook

where; the loginname is your user information when you login to your workstation.

How to transfer outlook.nk2 file to your new workstation?
You can use the following information on how to transfer file(s).
  • The easiest approach, use USB drive to copy and tranfer file from one computer to another.
  • Send the outlook.nk2 file as attachment using your email. Read this email to your new workstation and save the file to the outlook folder.
  • Shared folder to copy file
  • Call your local computer geek to help you.
  • Send me e-mail. I normally reply within 2-8 hours.

And to delete the e-mail address in your outlook cache, follow this procedure:

  1. Start by creating a "new mail message"
  2. Type the e-mail address, use the Down arrow key to select, then use Delete key to remove the e-mail address.
  3. Repeat the process to remove other e-mail address that you want out of your cache.

That's for now, post your comments.

Frequent Account Lockout in Active Directory

I have a user in Windows Pro 7, and Windows Server 2003 environment that is frequently account locked out. I tried many different scenarios to resolve this account lockout issue, from resetting his password, changing a new password, remove and re-join the domain, rebooting the workstation and active directory servers.

I tried to use the command prompt utility to run "rundll32.exe keymgrdll, KRShowKeyMgr" (case sensitive) to delete the account in Windows 7 password cache, and still no luck.

Still searching for answer ... Let me know if you encounter a similar issue in Windows Pro 7 and Windows Server 2003.
