TIP: slicker searching in Outlook

Track down those messages you know are around but can’t find using Lookout, a freebie from, of all companies, Microsoft.

This article appears in the December 06 issue of PC Advisor. Available now in all good newsagents.

Unlike separate search tools such as Google Desktop, Lookout is quicker to access because it becomes part of Outlook’s toolbar. Lookout is much faster and better at ferreting out email than Outlook’s Find function. For instance, it pokes into attachments and the content of PDF files. It also allows you to search with wild cards and Boolean expressions and to restrict searches to, say, only the past seven days.
