Lookout for Outlook

Posted by kbaggs on March 29, 2006

Along with 2Go SyncIt that I talked about in a previous post. Another one of my favorite utilities is Lookout for Outlook.

It is an add in for MS Outlook that loads into the menu bar. It is the same a the Find function, but far faster. It actually indexes every word of every email as it is added. The first time you run the software it could take 15-20 minutes to index everything. But that is a one time occurance. After that it indexes on the fly. What is great about it is the speed. Just this morning someone asked me about a document I had sent them in Sept. ’05. I simply typed in one key word and had the results back in under 3 seconds.

This product is so good, that Microsoft actually bought them to incorporate into future versions of Office.

    Your product reviews are excellent. Before I was happy with the things that I had and now I want to buy everything that you have reviewed.

    If you have any info on whether to go with HD LCD, or plasma TV, I would be interested in your advice. I am looking for one for the wall in my bedroom so that I can remove my old SONY TV from my dresser.

    Thanks again for your fun and informative blogs.
