If you have thousands on emails in your inbox and archive folders and you need to find some old email then outlook has a built-in search feature for you .

However, Outlook search has lots of problems, It is extremely slow , takes forever to complete, Outlook hangs while you are doing the search. No excerpt or highlights are given in results and you will have to individually open each mail item to confirm its contents.

The other option is to use Google Desktop for searching in emails, Google desktop installs an ad-on to Outlook from which you can directly search emails using Google Desktop.

I have found it very useful as it is quick, efficient and gives the desired results with a easy to use interface.
You can quickly scroll the search results, and it won’t get stuck like the outlook does while scrolling large folders.
It also highlights the searched terms in context , just like Google Web Search does.
