Have fun, open a PST, seach it, close it, repeat.....
or take a look here, never used it, but it might be worth a shot.

Subject: [ExchangeList] Need a way to search 200+ PSTs

I am doing some data recovery and research for a client and have
recovered over 200 PSTs files, both existing and un-deleted.  Now I need
to search all of the PSTs for some keywords.  If the PST contains those
key words I then need to copy those e-mail to a separate PST for the
lawyers, in addition to saving the original PST.


Anyone know of a good free or cheap way to do this, mainly just the
searching part?  Opening each PST in Outlook, indexing it, then
searching it really isn't an option.


I know this can be done with e-mail arching products that archive PST
data to SQL but this is overkill and cost prohibited for this project.
