I have been using Lookout for years. It still finds emails in Outlook and documents in My Documents easier and faster than any of the other search programs I have used. Do make sure to click on the Options button on the Lookout toolbar and check all the folders you want it to index. Realize that it does not always find recent emails until it has indexed it so check the indexing schedule. I have it index new items every 10 minutes. I just installed it in Windows 7 and Outlook 2007. It does still work in Outlook 2007 with the simple renaming of one file at the Command Prompt. Also, the first time opening Outlook after installing it, Outlook crashes. Just close it and reopen and all is fine.
I think the same as PaulDM, only that I use Lookeen instead of Copernic Desktop Search! In my opinion it makes no sense to work with an old and undeveloped tool, everything is changing and is going on just Lookout doesnt!
For me Lookeen is the follower, has the same functions even more, is faster etc.
I have been using LookOut for several years now and enjoy it greatly. I am still using it on my pc at work as we are running Office 2003, however at home I have Office 2007 and it doesn't work with that version, so I have been unfortunate to not be able to continue using it.
For those looking for a program to index their emails, which this will also index files based on specified file types, this is wonderful program. Much much faster than Outlook's search features.
Hope this review helps out.
Superfast, much powerful than MS' searching tools, indexes even volumes outside OL. Remarkable !
This is a great program that makes my life a lot easier. If you're someone who deals with any real volume of email, and you take the time to memorize the search logic of this little gem, it can save you hours of searching.
Lookout is a good idea but I think it has been superceded by other programs. I used Lookout for some time but found that it really slowed Outlook down especially when loading. I now use Copernic Desktop Search which I find is much faster and easier to use. It is easier to customize and also allows you to search network drives.
But this one is actually great. Very fast indexing and search. If you have a large inbox or mails spread out it's a very handy search tool.
