If you’re a fan of Windows Desktop Search, there’s a new cool download for you: Windows Desktop Search: Add-in for Outlook saved mail (.msg file) indexing.
No Desktop Search engine ever convinced me. Call me old-fashioned, but I still prefer to use Lookout ;-).
This iFilter allows you to perform a search on all elements of your MSG (.MSG) files including Message Body; Subject; From; From Name; From Address; To Name; To Address; CC Name; CC Address; Doc Title Prefix; Sent Date; Received Date; Primary Date; Conversation ID; Attachment Names and will indicate if an attachment is present within the .MSG. Additionally, content within attachments are indexed and searched.
By downloading this iFilter, Outlook .MSG files will be indexed by Windows Desktop Search when your PC is idle, or when you select to ‘Index Now’. Once the index is updated you can immediately search your .MSG files.
