Need help searching "exact" words in outlook
Posted on 2009-12-25
i need to make many search on many mailboxes in my company. I need to make a search of like 100 different terms on like 30 users. Then i need to move my result to one pst file per user. I get some problem. Here is how i do for the moment :
1. I open the user mailbox in outlook (2003 or 2007 i get both version)
2. i make an advanced search and i input the 10 first words
3. i copy what i have found into a pst file, pt that is divided into search 1 -> to search 10 (each search is about 10 words).
Well i am in trouble, impossible to get exact match with or outlook 2003 or outlook 2007. my search terms look like :
"term1" OR "term2" OR "term3" ....
But then in a mail if i have a word that contains term1 or term2 or term3 it will match. I want it to match if it contains the exact word term1 or term2 or term3 not everything with term1 inside (exemple : i look for "short", shorter, shortest etc match, i want only short to match!). I have tried putting space before or after the word " term1 " . I get the exact same result.
Do you know what is the best way to do my project ? I can buy any software if it really helps. I have acces to the command shell of our exchange server, but same issue, exporting data using filter make every word that contains my terms match.
I will really appreciate any help on this (any other method, how to search for exact word only in outlook, a software etc)
