Crawling Outlook MSG files

Feb 12, 2008 at 2:13 AM
Hi John,

I tried to follow your example and to build my own Protocol Handler for MOSS 2007. Everything works fine, except that I cannot crawl Outlook MSG files. The MSG iFilter is installed and it works when I crawl a file share. But when I try to crawl MSG files I get the message:

The filtering process could not process this item. This might be because you do not have the latest file filter for this type of item. Install the corresponding filter and retry your crawl.

I also tried to call/test the MSG iFilter from a standalone application in C# and that's fine, too.

Any thoughts?

Thanks,
Cipri
