How to restore cached e-mail addresses


C

Is there a way to backup all the cached e-mail addresses stored in Outlook?
By this, I mean that if I type the first few letters of an e-mail address in
a new message, the auto-complete feature selects it.

We have clients which use POP and Exchange-based e-mails, and when we have
to rebuild or re-image their computer, all these cahed addresses are lost.

Thoughts?

so basically I just backup this file before I rebuild the workstation, and
drop it back later into the equivalent location within the new profile later?
