I switched from using outlook express to Outlook 2007.
The search option in express works really good.
Today I tried searching for an email I got a few days ago from Hope in outlook. It pulled up all kinds of email that had no "hope " word in it that I could see...and not the email I was looking for.
It was in my inbox and on the first page. It took me 3 min to find it by scrolling down. With it highlighted I did another search 50 "non-hope"emails it found but not the one from hope. Is there something wrong with the program. I looked it up on google and found this format "from: Hope" still did not work.

Also I have a couple of hotmail accounts....I still check them all in express.
At work, when I add an account.... the message in outlook is "exchange can only set-up one exchange account!
Is it possible that outlook express is a better program the Outlook?! I use XP at home and at work. On both computers the search function does not work?!
However, I have no trouble in hotmail or express.

thanks in advance for your help.

just for clarification
at work I have my own personal email and an info email I want to check. Since one user has only one account do you have to log out and log in as "info" to check that account...seems very inefficient?!

Hello,

Is it possible that outlook express is a better program the Outlook?
This should answer your question.

Today I tried searching for an email I got a few days ago from Hope in outlook. It pulled up all kinds of email that had no "hope " word in it that I could see...and not the email I was looking for.

"Is it possible that outlook express is a better program the Outlook?"

Not as far as I'm concerned because with Outlook it is far easier to make backups of all your emails & contacts, all you have to do is export one file.
With Outlook Express you can't do that.

I never use it's search function so that's irrelevant to me.

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
