    What's the story with Windows Live Mail Desktop and Windows Desktop Search,
    latter does not seem to indexing the former.

    I've included all of c:\documents and settings\<acctname>\Local Settings\...
    as places which WDS should index. I can see all the .eml files why can't

    Do I need a special filter, if so, from where do I get it

    This is a repeat of what you posted at
    There was a
    comprehensive answer to that posting that you seem to have
    overlooked. What happens if you click
    news:// ?
    There's no need to use a third-party news server to access ms
    newsgroups, and doing so might provide a less satisfactory service,
    as you seem to have shown.

    So what is the answer? Per Microsoft, I switched to Windows Live Mail from
    Outlook Express since Express will not support hotmail after June. I use the
    find feature of Express daily to find email messages that contain certain
    text. I have XP and the find of Windows Live does not support searching text
    in XP. It was my understanding that Desktop Search needed to be loaded and
    could be used to do this. I have been unsuccessful in getting it to work and
    cannot find any instructions on what to do to get it to work. Any help would
    be much appreciated. prf

    Search does work sometimes in the web forum, too!
