full text indexing with exchange 2003 for all mailboxes...

As I understand it, full text indexing allows a user to search for a particular word in a store but only for that users mailbox. Is it possible for an administrator to search the mailboxes for all users to find a particular word like 'drugs'. I think exmerge can help but Im having problems installing it... but do I absolutely need this utility? Can it be done 'out of the box' as it were?

regards

You need to use exmerge or a third party utility. There is nothing native that will do it because no account has access to all mailboxes by default.
If you are having problems with exmerge that is usually down to permissions, particularly if you are trying to use the administrator account. The administrator account has explicit deny on the mailboxes. I find that the most effective way to use exmerge is to setup a dedicated account and use it from a workstation.
