Are you using 64bit office? If so, you'll need to use the 32bit version until google supports 64bit.

if you are using 32bit, you'll need to wait for google to support the new version. Many companies will release updates soon after its available retail.

Is there any update on the situation on this? My emails are still not being indexed.

 

I am using Windows 7 Ultimate, 32 bit, and Office 2010 Professional.

If Google is not going to update their desktop indexing for 64 bit Outlook 2010, is there another comparable option that we can employ in the meantime to search our emails that is better than Outlook's built-in search?  I'm getting a little desparate here.

How is google better than the built in search? It uses the Windows Desktop Search engine (not the old outlook search engine that was slower than molasses) and the last time i compared them, they were both about the same.

My opinion but Google Desktop blows the doors off the MS search!  How?   Take a mailbox that has 41,000 messages just in the main inbox alone.   Try searching for a keyword and might as well go to sleep.   With google desktop, the search is dislayed as a webpage almost instantly (fed to the browser over 127.0.0.1:localport).   To me, there is no comparison.   Regardless of where the message conversation may be filed (the conversation is filed in different folders) they are all displayed as a group.  Extremely curious as to how you performed YOUR comparison????  How many messages are in your mailbox in total?   Does it include PST files as well?

Diane,

Any update on the Goggle desktop / outlook exchange not being indexed. Some of our folks are asking me to look to move all our system to Gmail and get rid of Exchange. I find it a bit outlandish but this war between the 2 companies just leave the users with a sour taste.
BTW - Windows desktop Search is definitely not up to par to Google desktop. Some ways to go.
Why doen't MS deliver the Bing engine to the desktop?

Are you using 32 or 64bit Outlook?

I haven't heard anything as far as google updating their search engine for Outlook 2010. Its up to google to update it, not Microsoft, and I've seen a few posts around the net that feel the desktop search engine project is dead - considering it hasn't been upgraded in 2 yrs lends some credence to these rumors. 

As for moving to gmail to replace exchange - you need to do what meets your companies needs the best. Unfortunately, for many companies, google's services don't come close to exchange.

Off topic: I just wanted to point out that the last Google Desktop update (for Windows) was in May 2010. There have been at least five updates over the past 2 years, contrary to your supposition.

Just got Win7/Outlook 2010 laptop and am disappointed that GDS no longer indexes Outlook.  You asked:  "How is it different from Outlook's built-in search?"

First, I was pleasantly surprised by the new Outlook internal search function.  I have been a long time user of Lookout, which I understand was incorporated by MS into Outlook directly.  Good tool!

HOWEVER, Google Desktop Search provided integrated search of all emails AND files on my laptop, and it was extremely fast.

It appears that there must be some way to do a similar desktop search using the search window above the windows start button -- I have been successful finding both emails and files using that facility.  I have not been able to figure out how to open a window to search in, however.  If I try to use a regular Windows Explorer window, the search is done by what appears to be the old, SLOW search process.

I am sorry, but GDS is intuitive and fast.  Whatever Win7 does is hard to discover 10 days in to a new laptop.
