I tried this programm, but it doesn´t convinced me.
I use Lookeen and i think it is the best search tool i ever tried:
unbelievable fast, very accurate, great handling and lots of filters and functions. Just to mention some features: as lookeen being an outlook add-in, you can search very comfortable your mails plus attachments in multiple (!) PST-files.
