Hi Mvalencia2003,

Yes, if you are using Windows 7 and upper versions then it will directly show you the Outlook emails items according to search on the lists.

Just type the text or keyword of your search and it will show all the relevant items.

Not to take any light from Clark
 after your search click on See more Results to browse them otherwise if you click on just one you'll have to search again. Another thing I do is enable the preview pane  and pull out the line so that any email I scroll over the contents appear in the preview on the right its a lot faster

Does it matter if Cached Exchange Mode is ON or OFF
?

Do I need to change anything in Index Settings
?

Yes, enable cache exchange mode obviously will show you the cached items of OST file. So, it would be much better if you turn on the cache exchange mode.

I found this link more helpful regarding your query: http://www.brucebnews.com/2011/04/enable-outlook-2010-search-and-indexing-on-windows-7/

Cache Exchange mode makes your Outlook execution faster and even allow users to access emails in offline mode. It caches all the emails from mailbox to your OST so you can easily access them in offline mode.

You can get brief guide about cached exchange mode here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj683103(v=office.15).aspx
