A noob question from a recent Windows --> Mac convert. I am surprised to open the Spotlight Preferences (this on Leopard) and see such a basic array of options - I can't select which volumes to index, for example, which is easy in Windows Search. I have a Windows shared volume that is basically on my desktop all the time (it's a Fusion share through local host) and ALL my data is on there. I don't like relying on Windows Search and I'd like Spotlight to index that volume. It says on a spec sheet for Leopard 10.5 that you can do this. But I don't know how. Also, I would like to be able to search emails on email clients other than the built-in Mail (I use Thunderbird). Whenever I search for emails nothing comes up from the Thunderbird client, it's all Mail. Hrmph.
