Windows 7: does outlook indexing need windows search enabled to work?

does outlook indexing need windows search enabled to work?

As topic title says.

I have windows search disabled, but do find myself occasionally searching through emails, is it enough to just enable indexing in outlook or does it require the OS indexing also enabled.

You should be able to search (slower) with indxing turned off. Better yet, you can modify indexing to only search in specific places/for specific things. If you disabled windows search service, I don't know if you are able to search still. You should only need to deselect the harddrive/folders/files that you do not want to index.

Go to indexing options>modify to find where you can disable searching for specific things.
