    THe easiest way to enable search accross your whole system is to add the folders the the windows search. email is one of the items windows search does particularly well.

    you could enable the archive mailbox in exchange- that is searchable

    This article is pretty good on outllok search for 2010

    my final comment is that outllok search requires the data foldr to actually be open. If you go to the folder in outlook and do the search on the open folder, it should work. Windows search on the other hand, can parse mail in the pst folder, even if it is not open i n outllook. check it out
