SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario::
  • You have a computer that is running Windows Server 2008 with SP2 and that has Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS) 2007 installed.
  • You use Microsoft Office to post a message and attach files on a public folder on Microsoft Exchange Server 2007.
  • You configure a content source for the Public Folder on MOSS 2007
In this scenario, MOSS 2007 does not crawl correctly the attachment files which needs filter. Therefore, when you try to search words that are contained in the message attachment in the public folder, you cannot receive any search results.
