Outlook will support connecting to multiple accounts just like Outlook Express - in other words multiple POP / SMTP accounts such as hotmail or gmail.
Outlook did not support connecting to multiple Exchange accounts prior to the Outlook 2010, but now it does, so your incoming (and outgoing) email for other "generic" accounts such as info@ or sales@ can be shown alongside your normal inbox.
As for searching, this is easily improved if you have a better indexing engine in your OS, so you could install the (free) Windows Search on XP (Vista and Windows 7 have their own version of this built-in indexing tool which generally seems to perform better). By pre-indexing things, search is simply looking up a pre-determined result rather than actually having to read through your files (or emails in this case) to generate results on the fly.
Hope this helps
