Lookeen, yes!! I'm using it for about a month now. Won't use Outlook with out it anymore... Way better than the instant search and a good alternative to lookout, which unfortunately doesn't work on my new system anymore. Lookeen proved to be as good or even better, though!

Lookeen is a realy great search tool for Outlook 2003, 2007 and 2010 with lots of functions. It is fast, easy in use and the concept of the index search makes it possible, to find each information within seconds. With Lookeen you will 'find' instead of 'search'.
