    Lookout for Outlook - searching Exchange public fo

    Until recently I used Lookout as a quick and dirty method of searching the large public folders on our companies Exchange Server.

    I have managed to break Lookout and despite re installing it refuses to work.

    If anyone has any suggestions as to how I might either repair Lookout or search quickly a large set of public folders I would be very grateful.

    Have you tried uninstalling Lookout, deleting any left over data files/indices, then reinstalling?

    Thanks for this. I have uninstalled a and re installed a couple of times. I have been a little shy of attacking the registry but I will give it another whirl.

    Sorry, I meant have you checked you disk drive and removed any leftover files? Particularly check Cocuments and SettingsusernameApplicationDataLookout and/or Cocuments and SettingsusernameLocal SettingsApplicationDataLookout. Or do a search of your drive for 'Lookout'. Since Lookout is unsupported software it is difficult to find much information on it. Do you have any more information on your problem such as an error message or error code?

    Apologies for the delay in saying thanks. I have been away on vacation as well as being busy with work related items. This worked after several attempts. Additionally I downloaded and installed version 1.2 of Lookout.

    Thanks for your help.

    No problem. Glad you got it worked out. You may want to have a look at Windows Desktop Search Home Page. This is the official MS product replacing Lookout.
