Take a look at Outlook 2010. The built in search is pretty good. Complex searches are tuned with search commands. 

Better yet if you can, Outlook 2011. This is the first outlook I have ever liked. Menus never left the Mac version. Does disconnected exchange well, has nice kmail/evolution quality threading and select to quote. Searching is quite good. Seems to have the power of the windows version without having to memorize all of the search commands you need with 2010.
