    Live Mail indexing in Windows Desktop Search 3.1

    Just installed Live Mail, but find that WDS still indexes (only) at Outlook
    Express emails. There seems to be no option in WDS to include LM in the
    email search.

    Am I missing something? Does anyone know how to force WDS to index emails
    stored in Live Mail?
    Help appreciated - ff

    Re: Live Mail indexing in Windows Desktop Search 3.1

    Works fine for me. Make sure your Store folder (Options > Advanced >
    Maintenance > Store folder button will tell you where it is) is marked for
    indexing (Right-click on the folder in Explorer, select Properties > General
    tab > Advanced button) and included in indexed locations in WDS (Click on
    the tray icon and select WDS Search options > Modify to select the Store
    folder). Check also that on the Advanced > File types tab, eml and nws files
    are included and the option to Index properties and file contents is
    selected. OK your way out, then go to bed.

    The default Store folder location (in %userprofile%\Local Settings) is by
    default excluded from the WDS index.

    Wow! Ildhund - thanks for step by steps. Much appreciated. I had kinda
    naively assumed that LM would be picked up automatically - just like OE had
    been when WDS was first installed.

    will give it a go. Thanks

    Re: Live Mail indexing in Windows Desktop Search 3.1

    I have followed the instructions below. Emails are now indexed, but.....

    a) the title is shown as a file name, eg 17CF2AA2-0000000A3.eml
    b) the email opens up in OE, even though WLM is set as the default email
    client
    c) WDS will only index emails that have been opened (presume the email has
    thus been downloaded to a file in the WLM folder.

    Not really satisfactory. Are there other settings that need to be changed
    to make WLM store emails in a form compatible with WDS.

    One other thing: The "All Locations" pull-down in WDS only shows options for
    "Files" or "Outlook Express". Live Mail not mentioned. Hope this helps

    Yep. A raw .eml file has no document properties to speak of (like Title,
    Subject, Author etc). The file name is all that WDS has to go by, and the
    developers chose this arcane file-naming convention, probably to deter
    people like me from messing about with files in the Store folder. If you do
    do that, you foul up the database and create all sorts of trouble.

    > b) the email opens up in OE, even though WLM is set as the default email
    > client
    Quick and dirty: right-click on an eml file name (you can do it in a WDS
    window) and select Open with. Select "Always use this program...", browse to
    wlmail.exe and OK your way out. Same again for nws. Posh way: Control Panel

    > Folder options > File types, find EML (and NWS) and click Change. Browse

    Don't know about this - I haven't got any unread e-mails to play with. It
    will depend, of course, on your synchronization settings. If you download
    Headers only, then there isn't anything to index yet. But I would have
    thought that a downloaded message body would get indexed regardless of
    whether it had been read or not.

    > Not really satisfactory. Are there other settings that need to be changed

    If you drag an eml or nws file from WLMail to your desktop, it will appear
    with FileName = Subject: and DateModified=Date:, and so be indexed by WDS
    with this new file name as Title. (The "Date modified" on an eml file in the
    file system is the date and time it was written to the database, not the
    Date: field of the message itself). This seems, though, to be a lot of
    effort for little gain.

    > One other thing: The "All Locations" pull-down in WDS only shows options
    > for "Files" or "Outlook Express". Live Mail not mentioned.
    That's because it's covered by Files. OE stores its messages in a
    portmanteau database file called *.dbx, whereas WLMail stores them as
    individual files. You do have an "E-mail" button a bit further right which
    will restrict your search to eml and nws (and, I think, RSS) files.

    Now, having said all that, I personally find that I don't use the WDS search
    facility much to find messages. I just use the "Find a message" box in
    WLMail - this accesses the WDS index and produces results very quickly,
    within a particular folder or in "All e-mail" or "All news". If I need to
    find messages From but not To a particular individual, then Edit > Find
    (Ctrl-Shift-F) works well, but slowly compared with the 'Find a message'
    wordwheel.

    Oh, and one more thing I remembered while reading this through before
    hitting 'Send'. EML and NWS files are plain text files. I have the file
    associations for EML and NWS set to Notepad. This doesn't affect the
    workings of WLMail, but it does mean that if the mail program is not
    running, I can still view a mail message without waiting for WLMail to start
    up.

    Happier now?

    Re: Live Mail indexing in Windows Desktop Search 3.1

    Happier.... and a bit disappointed that MS can't integrate search all in one
    place.

    Relieved that I can move on! Will try out search within LM - I had assumed
    it was as poor as that within OE, but from your remarks it looks like it may
    be a bit better.

    Comprehensive reply much, much appreciated.

    Re: Live Mail indexing in Windows Desktop Search 3.1

    Hi, I've followed your indications and eveything is correct, except that it
    won't search text within email messages. It shows sender or subject content,
    but not the text itself. Is there a way to work? Thx.

    Re: Live Mail indexing in Windows Desktop Search 3.1

    First, please ensure that all the settings are as they should be. Check that
    on the WDS Search options > Advanced > File types tab that the entries for
    eml and nws have Index properties and file contents selected. The Filter
    description should show C:\WINDOWS\system32\mimefilt.dll. If it doesn't, you
    should uninstall and reinstall WDS.

    Did you Rebuild your index after making changes to the settings? This would
    probably happen automatically, which is why I didn't mention it before.

    Try closing down WDS, rebooting and then restarting it.

    If it's still not working properly, it may be necessary to uninstall it
    using Add or remove programs and then reinstall it. If you still have the
    installer package (something like
    WindowsDesktopSearch-KB917013-V301-XP-x86-ENU.MSI), you can right-click on
    it and select Repair instead.

    In any case, you'll have to wait until WDS has finished indexing before
    getting reliable results, and that could take several hours. Please report
    back whatever happens, so others can benefit from your experience.

    Re: Live Mail indexing in Windows Desktop Search 3.1

    Hi again,

    After checking again I've forgot to say that I'm using Windows Live Mail as
    my email client. Local help from WDS says it's only compatible with Outlook
    2007 and Outlook Express. However I made sure and added my WLM mail folder
    and included the eml properties and content extension, but it won't give
    result for any mail search, just other documents.

    I can search subjects from within Windows Live Mail, though, but it doesn't
    seem to search email contents either, even after installing WDS 3.1 ,as it
    prompted previously.
    So I wonder whether WDS is useful to me since it does not search more that
    it did before without it even from Windows Live Mail. Am I correct?

    thx again

    Re: Live Mail indexing in Windows Desktop Search 3.1

    I too am trying to get WDS 3.01 to index my Windows Live Mail. I have WDS
    set to index the Windows Live Mail Folders. And the .eml settings are set to
    index contents. I've tried everything I've heard suggested. I even
    reformatted my computer and reinstalled Windows with still no success.

    Are some people actually getting WDS to index the contents of their emails?
    I'd like to hear someone say that they have definitely gotten search results
    that had to come from the text within the email, not just the subject.

    I can't get any results at all!!! I can search the subject and the To/From
    fields from within Windows Live Mail, but if I type a word that is in the
    message body of an email, I get no results. And yes, I've given it plenty of
    time and waited until it said it was done.
