I use a number of Outlook plugins with Outlook 2003, but only two are indispensible: SpamBayes and Shutdown Add-in.

Gmail.  :Thmbsup:    I try not to use Outhouse except for my ISP main email which I rarely use so it stays clean. I am hooked on Google mail completely. It's so handy to have almost 3gigs of stuff stored in a place that you can access from all over the world. I have a bunch of stuff I use to help friends get there comps running with stored in my Google account.

Plus the 10Mb attachment size lets you send just about anything you want. There is a splitter joiner tool that automatically cuts files and sends them so you can send huge files through your Google account.  For a while the movie pirates were using Google to trade 700Mb divx movies!

I use Lookout to do a search in Outlook.  I find the default search to be s.l.o.w.

I use Outlook and I was about to post a request for some suggestions on some very precise needs

The first one is that i use Outlook's categories as "tags" and tend to put all my read email in one big "processed email" folder, and then I use sort by categories, and a few category related virtual folders (for large categories). The problem is that this doesnt allow me to drill down quickly and i end up using search all the time.

What i would really like is a way to use categories/tags to organise content, then have an easy way to drill down without having to go to advanced search all the time.
I found one tagging add on at  www.taglocity.com but so far it hasnt wowed me but it seems all right. Theres also one being promised at www.sidefinder.net but i contacted them and nothing testable just yet.
I have found that there are autofilers, but i dont want to maintain a whole mountain of folders, even with the best searchable help (and most search technology doesnt work in an exchange environment all that well)

All in all I am most interested in a way to do multi-level sorts in outlook, in a dynamic and flexible way, or some much better search that is usable in a live,dynamic way

Taglocity is the best I have found so far, and I wondered if anyone had a better solution

One add on I have been testing at the moment is xobni, which mostly analyses contacts and emails to produce nice little profiles, for each contact, showing not only the history of interactions (and the wonderful "files exchanged with x" section listing all attachments sent or received, which means I only need to find an email from that person to find any attachment they sent me, i like that!) but also social features like who they are connected to, emailing patterns, and some quick overview tools

Its actually useful, especially the attachment feature (although i tend to delete attachments out of email to save on space), although not as useful as it could be (it falls down on things like how it deals with flagged items and todos etc.)

Thanks for the pointer to Xobni, iphigenie. I googled it after reading your post above (the day you posted it) and received my invite this morning. It has just about finished analyzing my data and I'm going to take it for a spin. Looks very intersting, though I wonder what all of that power is going to do to Outlook's resource needs...

iphigenie - I've started a thread about Xobni here, and wonder if you have any observations about it that you'd like to share there?
