At work I use Xobni (inbox spelled backwards) to index outlook - it
does a few other things as well (some more useful than others).  I
haven't found it to really impact performance and it does make up for
some of Outlook's other deficiencies (lack of threading being chief of
these).  It also can help if you want to set up a meeting with
somebody not on your exchange server, by suggesting times and typing
them out in an email for you (since you can't auto-negotiate them).

What I don't know is if it handles PST files/etc, or how it handles
multiple OST files.  My suspicion is that as long as you keep them all
mounted all the time it will work.  I doubt it can index a file

This is not a desktop indexing solution - it is limited to Outlook.
