When I search for an old email using Outlook's Look for: box and specify
which folders to search in via the "Choose folders=>Search subfolders"
checking a folder does not actually cause any subfolders to be checked.
Unless there is some other setting and/or option hidden away somewhere, the
"Search subfolders" check box is not working. I must manually check all the
desired subfolders. What am I doing wrong?

...Searching for Newsgroups
I subscribe to a Usenet service for accessing various news groups.
After I download all the newsgroups from that server I can not find a way to
search for the newsgroups I have interest in.
When I put something like "RV" in the search box on the top right corner, it
searches all of my Emails rather than just the list of groups that had "RV"
in the title.
Help tells me that there is a " Display newsgroups containing" box but for
the life of me I can't find it.
Any thoughts out there?

My question today regarding this issue is: I have noticed some sites have
the following on their sites "Source".
meta name= "robots" content="Index, follow"
meta name= "revisit-after" content="15 days" or (30 days)
What does this function accomplish as far as search engines go? and will it
really imporve your results ( rankings) Like for instance "robots" "index,
all" what is the difference between this and saying "robots" "index, follow"

...What does outlook search when you search Contacts ?
When you do a search in oulook for contacts, what is the criteria that
outlook searches? Or I guess how does outlook search? Why is it not
consistant? The reason I am asking is that we have our customers
contacts in public folders. In our customers we have 6 contacts for XYZ
Foods. If you search in outlook for just "XYZ" it only comes back with
4 of the six. If you do a search for "XYZ Foods" it returns with all 6.
And if you just entered "Foods" no contacts were found. And we actually
have a few companies in our contacts who's names are a two part name
