Just to add to the conversation, we've enabled Desktop Search on 3 Terminal Servers, as Outlook 2007 search is basically broken without it. On one, 40+ users at a time, no problem. On another, 8 users, no problems. On a third, 10 users, absolute disaster as it basically used up all CPU. 10 users =10 Indexing thread, each throttled to 10% by Threadmaster, = unusable TS. In fairness, these users have never deleted anything and their mailboxes are up around 3-8GBs each or so, but we nearly lost them as a client - though that was our fault, they're very twitchy about slowness and complain every moment their broadband blinks, so we kinda ignored their slowness complaints for a while...

I think I'm going to uninstall WDS and go back to Lookout using these methods.

I actually used Copernic Desktop Search for outlook, but their recent upgrade has actually regressed some functionality and it's actually not even tolerable at this point. where can i get lookout ? as i'm currently running outlook 2k3. I've heard that one needs to be wary of the desktop search engines when it comes to outlook connecting to an Exchange box as it could possible lead to unnecessary overhead on the server side..

Small, lean, QUICK. When I upgraded to Office 2007 I was stuck in that Lookout doesn't work. Since MS purchased Lookout Software, I figured the search capabilities of WDS combined with Outlook 2007 would be just as good. So I broke down and installed WDS and configured it to index nothing but Outlook (slows down my computer too much for file system indexing). Verdict? Not as good as Lookout. Nowhere near as fast to pull up search results, WAY more intensive overhead on the system. That being said, it's VASTLY superior to using the built in Outlook 2007 search without WDS. I haven't looked into any other options. I believe the MSN toolbar has integrated search capabilities that are supposed to work with Outlook, but I have always assumed it would be exactly the same as if you had WDS installed. Maybe not? I'm disappointed that MS screwed the pooch on integrating Lookout search technology in the way they did. They should have simply integrated Lookout into Outlook 2007 and not required WDS.
