Microsoft Corporation Press Release. MSN Announces Investment in Search Technology. Redmond, WA. July 16, 2004.
Interesting move by MSN. Purchase of Lookout brings Index and Search capabilities to Microsoft to be able to search across multiple .PSTs, multiple MAPI datasources, etc. Similar to others on the market like OutIndex, etc. but reportedly faster. I evaluated OutIndex two months ago and could never get satisfactory results unfortunately (huge index, slow performance, never completed indexing 120,000 msgs across 10 .PSTs on one of my computers). Will see where this goes.
