Where the Hell is that Email: Searching Microsoft Outlook

This is a really quick post (promise) b/c I am being picked up for the airport in 25 minutes.  What is the best tool for searching in Microsoft Outlook?  Let’s admit, the native search on Outlook 2007 sucks (sorry for the potty mouth but it is the only way to describe it).  I have been using the Xobni plug in and highly recommend it.  Not only does Xobni offer lightening fast search, but it creates profiles and statistics on everyone who sends you email, including pulling pictures and information on them from sites liked Linkedin.  Now a friend of mine at a bankruptcy firm swears by a program called Look Out.  Problem is this thing is a dinosaur.  If you can find a copy to download, it basically just works as a search function.  Now maybe that is elegant and streamlined and all that, but I expect more from my tools these days.  What other Outlook tools have you found that are must haves for search and mail functions?
