Halp Alternative to Windows Search 4.0

Discussion in 'useless chatter' started by itburnswhenipee, Mar 15, 2010.

  1. I'm having no end of trouble with the instant search feature-- driven by windows search 4.0-- of outlook 2007. More to the point, it works fine for a few days and then fails to deliver any results at all regardles of how much index rebuilding and reinstalling I do. Are any of you using a good and preferably lighter weight tool to index and search outlook mail? I'm all ears at this point.
     
  2. still on outlook '03 company-wide here
     
  3. I just remember approx dates and sources of the emails and go to 'received from' sorting and head to the date in question.

    I've never been a fan of outlook search. Never worked right.
     
  4. This used to be my MO, but the volume of mail, legitimate and corporate spam, I have to deal with has overwhelmed this...
     
  5. Thats what I do.
    Ive never used the actual search feature.
     
  6. xobni?
     
  7. I'm looking at that right now. Do you use it? Is it any good?
     
  8. No, but quite a few people here do. I guess it works ok. Its indexing can suck up CPU and i/o cycles, tahts for sure, but so does WinSearch...
     
  9. google desktop will search within outlook. it even adds a search box to the toolbar in outlook. (2007)
     
  10. can we have a :greek: smilie?
     
  11. You mean it isn't this one? :case:
     
  12. similar, yet different..
     
  13. Someone chop him into a toga with a crown of laurels!
     
  14. :tarponsprings:?
