Lookout

I just saved enough time looking for a document in one of my many email folders, that I now have time to write this tip.

I've tried Google Desktop, MSN Search and a couple of other products, but the one I use daily to find stuff in my email, on my computer and on my network is a strange little Outlook add-in called Lookout.  I say it is strange, because while the company was acquired some time ago by Microsoft, it also seems to remain available as a stand-alone tool.

If you are still using the built-in search capabilities of Outlook, you've got to try this.  It is lightning fast, reliable and will save you hours of hunting for that old email or file.  If you want a simple search tool, that doesn't bring along a lot of other capabilities, give Lookout a try.

You may want to try Copernic Desktop Search. Smallest footprint, largest number of filetypes, and of course outlook data, incl. attachments
