Hi, folks,

Is there any way to convert Outlook Express emails into text that can be searched with a word processor program or some other search engine? I know OE has limited search capability using author and subject, but I would like to be able to search the entire message for key words or phrases.

Thanks,

JC

Thanks for the reply. Sorry I took so long to get back to the forum.

Windows Desktop Search doesn't seem to work for what I want. I would like something that will search the content of emails for specific subjects or words or phrases. Many times the content of the message has information not addressed in just the email subject line.

Any ideas on how to do this?

Thanks,

JC

Thanks, KCNYChief and Khayman,

I tried Windows Desktop Search again, and it does appear to do what I want and what you said. This is great news!! I must have screwed something up before for it not to work.

Thanks again,

JC:)

More than likely didn't let it complete the first index, but glad you got it to work :)

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
