Desktop Search Utility for outlook Public Folders

Experts,

Is anyone aware of a Free desktop search utility that is capable of searching the public folders in outlook 2003? We have a large public folder structure and I am looking for a better method to retrieve emails than manually searching through the folders, the search utility in outlook does not always find the documents.

Thank you for your time!!!!!!

Have you tried Google Desktop?  I believe it will search public folders.  It's great on private folders.

Hello Paul_S01,

Google Desktop will search your public folders in Outlook.  Outlook needs to be opened when indexing is going on.

Windows Desktop Search has the ability to index and search outlook contents, including the public folders.
Google Desktop and Copernic Desktop Search are also good alternatives.

Thanks Russo!!!!!
I tried the Google and the Windows search suggestions and they worked for
basic searches I discovered they do not do well for files deep in the folder structures. The Xobni utility is amazingly fast and accurate, this is one of the best free utilities that I have seen.
