    I disabled indexing/spotlight on my imac and haven't noticed any issues. The only thing I miss is searching for e-mails in mail. Is there a way to re-enable indexing/spotlight and have all that information stored on an external drive, rather than on my main ssd?

    No there is not. Why do you have it turned off to begin with? If you are concerned about write cycles to the SSD, you need not be concerned about that.
