Lookeen Desktop Search is an indexed-based file and email search tool for business and private users. With Lookeen you will not only find the information you need on your desktop – shared folders and network paths can also be indexed and searched.
Lookeen allows you to simultaneously search the contents of Office documents (.xlsx, .docx, .pptx etc.), PDF files, web content such as HTML or PHP pages, and many more. The search results preview window will show you a quick view of the document or email content. Search query words and filters are highlighted in the preview window with different colored markers.
After installation the program, the program can be accessed by either pressing CTRL twice, by accessing the Windows start menu or by using the taskbar menu. Lookeen optionally automatically integrates into the Outlook.

Lookeen wants to clear my index and rebuild it even after I selected not to do this.
I have discussed this with Tech Support and they are VERY slow in responding. They keep promising a solution but have waited for weeks.
Would recommend looking for something else if you are running Windows10.
When I tried to access the website on Firefox, my browser warned me the site is a security risk.
After happily using the trial, I'm now fully enjoying its whole potential. Very useful little tool...
Nice little tool with big impact on the way you will work in Outlook. Searches everywhere, finds nearly everything in an instant... Simply great!
I read about Lookeen on snapfiles.com the other day. Downloaded it, searched for stuff, found stuff, and began to love this tool... :)
One of the most useful plugins for Outlook, in my opinion... Finds it's way through my email 'jungle'. Does exactly what it's supposed to: search AND find! I can only recommend this little tool, it's at least worth a try and a closer look.
I compared Lookeen with X1 for Outlook searches. Lookeen really does trump X1 starting with the seamless outlook integration. It does have a fairly high learning curve however. I'd say 3 or 4 hours before you get the hang of it. Still the "Conversation" & "Topic" buttons don't do anything except throw completely random results at you or don't even work at all. The options button in the ribbon is not coded properly either as it opens but you would never know it because you can't see it. You have to click on your outlook icon to see it, so you might find it half hour later when you do that.
I also could not get Lookeen to display any of the pdfs in any module. I don't know if this has something to do with default viewers or what but it is really a disappointment. Still I liked it better than X1 which already seems outdated and equally as buggy for these not cheap programs which are supposed to work out of the box!
So that is 3 features out of a host of them that don't work. I can see I'll have to spend hours on support requests and wonder if they can patch it back together.
Best feature of Lookeen for me is 'Lookee Analytics'. Gives me more insight to my email communication in a clear an simple way. Fine search and find with this tool. Well done Lookeen developers.
There is only one possible solution for Outlook ---> lookeen
Thanks for this great tip! That tool seems to be the tool I'm searching for!
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!
For me the best search tool ever!! It really finds everything within seconds!!
