    Thanks for great tool. I would like to use it also to search my Outlook messages. I use an Exchange account with an .ost file on my PC. The release notes indicate that non-pst Outlook files can be indexed but I have not found how. When creating an new index, the option "Outlook PST..." is proposed, but when I point it to my .ost file, it simply says it is not a valid .pst file???

    Hi,

    The release notes indicate that non-pst Outlook files can be indexed but I have not found how.

    I don't recall any mention of support for non-PST files. What release notes are you referring to? In any case, only PST files are actually supported.

    Best regards

    Hello Quang,
    In the changelog for version 1.1.8 I found this sentence:
    "Outlook indexing is not restricted to PST files anymore."
    Sincerely
    Philippe

    Well, that only means you can index files that have a PST format, but don't have the file extension "pst". An OST file is a different file format altogether, and so is not supported.
