How to improve the use of the activities tab in Outlook

In Outlook 2003, the contacts cards have a tab and once you click that it starts collecting all the emails that have been sent to and from this contact. Sounds useful, but is it? I have just tried with one contact of whom I know there is but one email in an inbox containing 6000 items. I have a fast computer, but it nevertheless takes more than 7 minutes before this email isfound. Is there a way to have the list of emails always up to date, without Oulook (or possibly Exchange) having to search every time one clicks this tab?

outlook 2010 does that for you, improved search and massive IW features.
if you don't want to use O2010, then Outlook 2007 SP2 will help you out with the desktop search option, once installed it will crawl the emails and search results will be instantly

information worker :D. you will find for example a contact preview (picture..etc), double click on the contact you will find his info, you can copy email and phone from the contact card
you can link his sharepoint portal, along with conversation view...they are so many :D
