I'm having a bit of trouble w/ Outlook, although its more annoying than really life threatening. Say I sent a message today, and had the name Staale in that message. I go to FIND and in LOOK FOR I type in Staale, but instead of grabbing my most recent messages, it starts to grab messages from a few days before. Does anyone know why Outlook does that? Is there a way to fix it? P.S. It has happen since I've downloaded the service pack.

Personally I use a nice little program called 'Lookout' which is integrated into Outlook and is unbelievably fast at searching the largest outlook files. Not only that, it be set to search 'my documents' too.

I have found things I had given up looking for in the past.

I would highly recommend this. Minimum requirement is Outlook 2000 or later.

Hope this helps
