You cannot search Outlook from Windows Explorer. That will just search your file structure.

Use Windows Search and that WILL search Outlook. I do this all the time.

Open Control Panel, Index Options and ensure both Outlook and USERS show up in Locations. Rebuild the index if you make changes.

Now use Windows Search and you will quickly find anything that was indexed.

Explorer search is (can be) slower as you may be searching non-indexed locations. I do this also.
