Still not happy with Houdah Spot
I am still not happy with Houdah Spot on Mac when I compare it to the powerful and easy to use X1 search on windows. One key feature that I am missing is the embedded document/email previewer. Also the Outlook 2011 is not integrated well into Houdah Spot.
A typical search that I want to be able to perform is "find an email message anywhere in the whole message store that has either a PowerPoint or Acrobat PDF attachment and inside that PPTX or PDF file there are the works "aaa, xxx, yyy, and zzz".
I have not found a way to do that in Houdah Spot.

The Mac is capable of detailed searches........
-A Searching "This Mac" window opens up
-Skip the upper Search bar unless your search is for general results
-click the Plus sign just below it
-On the left there are two drop down menus in succession that allow detailed searches including what is in a document, a file name,exact or includes, email addresses etc.
-First drop down includes Kind, Last opened date,Last Modified date,created date,name,contents,email addresses,Other
-Then you can choose from matches,contains,begins with,ends with is
Using list view also helps to see when it was created or altered as well.
Hope this helps someone. Don't know about the parallel thing but worth a try.
Spotlight is a quick search but you can also click the show in finder window to get to the same search window I've described above

Resurrecting an old thread to ask if the OP, bigmacduck, or anyone else, has had any success in finding a Mac-based replacement for X1's excellent and exhaustive capability to find desired emails across multiple Outlook pst files?
This is still the only thing keeping me back from immediately switching out all of our Windows PCs for MacBooks. We rely heavily upon X1's ability to quickly and easily find historic email (or anything other file) using any combination of search criteria (sender, recipients, subject, body text, dates, attachment metadata, etc). I know I'm not alone here - just wish X1 would create a Mac package already.
Outlook's own Search function is not even close in terms of ease and performance, particularly since it is limited to one pst at a time.
