    Flagged items and *.pst files (2003/SP1)

    I would like to be able to search in ALL of my folders (that is, all of my *.pst files and their subfolders) for flagged items for follow-up; ideally I would be able to do this from Mailbox>Search Folders. Is this possible? The Help files don't seem to address searches outside the Mailbox.

    Thanks in advance,
    Erik

    I don't use Search Folders, but it looks like you can add a PST-targeted Search Folder to the Search Folders group in your Mailbox Search Folders. The attached censored graphic shows what options I have when I right click on the Parent Search Folder in my Server Mailbox and select 'New Search Folder'. Does this help?

    Thanks for the quick reply! Your suggestion is a start, but this option lets me pick only one PST file at a time. What I would like to do is search all of them at once. Possible?

    <img src=/S/sorry.gif border=0 alt=sorry width=15 height=15> It appears that you can only set a search folder for one information store at a time (an information store being a server mailbox, or a single PST, or Public Folders), which is also true of Outlook's Advanced Search Function. Maybe you could try creating all the necessary Search Folders and then a Search Folder which Searches those Search Folders? Or you could see if Lookout will do what you want.
