We have an Exchange server 2003 on Windows Server 2003. I need to pull up and e-mail that we received months ago from an inbox that has thousands of items. I can do it from my workstation by searching with Outlook, however, as soon as I touch that folder my outlook freezes because of the total number of Items in that folder.

Is there any way I can search for these e-mails directly from the mail server where it won't take so much time. How to pro admins search for critical e-mails that are needed?

Thank you!
