Once you add it in to Outlook by default yes you will be able to.

if you aren't then open indexing options under control panel and make sure Outlook is listed.  If you click modify you will be able to expand Outlook and make sure archives are checked.

I want it searchable.  I just don't want it part of my exchange live production.
