there is a bug in the lookout bar. Upon restarting my outlook, the bar dosen't display, even though it's enabled under View>Toolbars.
A blank space displays instead on where the toolbar should be.
I had to restart my computer, and that solved the problem for me. Other that one glitch, I am quite pleased with LookOut.

It's funny how lack of speed can prevent users from using a feature. I never really used Outlook's builtin search. I use LookOut all the time.
Exactly and with the way email storage has increased these days - this was a MS must-have for keeping people on Outlook..
However, my experience has been that there are programs that are true email organizers that take this idea to a much higher level. The downside is that they charge. But the two I have tried both have trial periods so you can see for yourself.
If this is of interest to anyone, you might take a look at X1 and Nelson Email Organizer.
The Nelson tool is probably the one I'm going to go with. It just seems to organize emails the way a person typically searches for them.
Personally, I find it quicker and easier to use than Lookout and X1.
But all that being said, it's really hard to beat the Lookout price tag.
The feature I use the most is searching by "Correspondent". I like that the most because it organizes all of the emails to and from a particular individual. That makes it incredibly easy to follow a complete dialogue with one individual. It pulls all emails, no matter what folder they are in, into one group. Very handy, imo.
Brett I gotta agree that this is changing how I use my computer.
Frankly I can't believe it has taken someone so long to come out with this. Indexing tools have been around for a long time. This seems to be nothing more than a simple keyword search tool, except that it is blazing FAST!
