Advanced Find – Words Within a Document

Advanced Find – Words Within a Document

I’m trying to use the Advanced Find feature of Outlook to locate attachments that contain a specific word (analogous to the Containing Text feature of Windows’ Find feature). I select Files (Outlook/Exchange) in the Look For field, but the option to look in “any document text field” apparently does not interrogate the actual content of the attachments. Is there a way to do this?

Not in Exchange 5.5, but if you’re planning to upgrade to Exchange 2000 you’ll be pleased to know that they’ve integrated the indexing engine into the server product, so you will be able to search documents in a folder (and attachments as well, I believe) for specific text.
