I have a lot of information stored in my Outlook folders. Maybe you’re in the same position – dozens of subfolders, or 5,000 messages in your Inbox that you plan to organize as soon as you have time.

80-20 Retriever is a $49.95 program that indexes your Outlook folders and does lightning-fast searches, presenting results by content, person, date, or folder. The new version 3.0 adds a preview pane and also indexes all of the Microsoft Office documents on your local hard drive or on network drives. It can be run on the Outlook Today page, on a separate Outlook page, or in a web browser from a desktop shortcut. It was just chosen as a PC Magazine Editor’s Choice in a review of message and file indexers. If you’re an Outlook power user, this can be an invaluable addition to your arsenal.
