Does Alfresco Index Email Content?

Question asked by dgildeh on Apr 16, 2006

Need an answer to this question before I go and see a client this week so any help is much appreciated. The client saves their e-mails in outlook MSG format, and I have tried putting a test MSG file in Alfresco and trying to search on the emails content, but it doesn't seem to be. I also tried a plain text file and I couldn't search on the content for that either.

Does Alfresco index outlook MSG file contents? And what do I need to do to index the content of these files if not? Why didn't the plain text file contents get indexed? Do I need to set something up or do you have to wait a while for it to be indexed properly as its a background task?
