Want Lookout then get it today!

As theofficeweblog writes Lookout ver. 1.2 is available for download until 1200 hrs PST today after which you would need to find a friend or wait till Microsoft decides how they want to release it.

Sure, I would love to download it but what is Lookout? Well, that is the exact same reaction I had when I first read this in the papers yesterday. Basically, Lookout is an extension to Outlook written in .NET for doing really fast searches. With Lookout installed, you can search the entire contents of your mailbox in less than a second. It works on Outlook 2000 and up and requires ver 1.1 of the .NET Framework. Just enter your search and press enter – the results are instant.  Lookout will find your search terms hiding nearly anywhere in your Outlook mailbox – subjects, bodies, phone numbers, addresses, etc. With Lookout you can search for:

  • Email messages
  • Contacts, calendar, notes, tasks, etc.
  • Data from exchange, POP, IMAP, PST files, Public Folders
  • Files on your computer or other computers

Like I said I myself have not played with this but I read some reports which seemed quite impressive. I will take it for a spin and post my views till then if any of you reading this have any reviews I would love to hear it.

This blog is my personal blog and while it does reflect my experiences in my professional life, this is just my thoughts. Most of the entries are technical though sometimes they can vary from the wacky to even political – however that is quite rare. Quite often, I have been asked what’s up with the “gibberish” and the funny title of the blog? Some people even going the extra step to say that, this is a virus that infected their system (ahem) well. [:D] It actually is quite simple, and if you have still not figured out then check out this link – whats in a name?
