Windows Desktop Search and Outlook 2007

I’ve been struggling getting Windows Desktop Search to index my emails.  It just doesn’t do it.  I’ve found lots of people with different issues, but none of them worked, until I found a forum that referenced  Turns out, if you’re running Windows Desktop Search, Outlook AND Exchange System Management tools on your computer, the Exchange tools overwrite a DLL file that enables searching.  To fix simply run %windir%system32fixmapi.exe, reboot and reindex.

Google is a wonderful thing.
