Why does Yahoo Desktop Search not index my Microsoft Outlook?
YDS is an awesome program, but the support from Yahoo is painfully lacking.

There have been a slew of user posts on the YDS Community Page with regards to YDS not indexing Microsoft Outlook. I am one of those unfortunates for which YDS stopped indexing a couple of weeks back. I have attached the link for your reference:


As you can see, there are cries for help that are being ignored.

I think I may have the problem narrowed down to YDS only indexing .pst extension files and not .ost extension files for Outlook. Is there a way to confirm this?

I store my email folders on the Exchange server and Outlook stores a local cache on my hard drive. The local cache is in .ost format.


im sorry i cant help you there i use outlook to check my hotmail account
