Tool to search through .pst and .ost emails

Postby kaspermalfroid » Thu May 21, 2015 8:45 am

Hi there,

I am using Everything now for over a year and absolutely love the tool. The speed is amazing.

A large part of my job includes searching in archived emails from Outlook. I have a .pst Outlook archive file of about 6 GB that I often search through. Sadly the search functionality of Outlook 2013 itself is quite limited and slow (even though the .pst file and my Windows search index are placed on SSD).

Can anybody recommend a good (preferably free/opensource) tool to search within .pst files? Or any other good solution to handle searching through this large email archive?

Thanks,
Kasper

- by far the best tool I've found (can also make portable), granted will still require an initial indexing of pst which can be accomplished relatively quickly
