I was having trouble with my Spotlight (and HoudahSpot) searches, so I deleted the Spotlight index and let it be recreated.

After recreation HS no longer finds Entourage messages (it did before!) that Spotlight still finds. I'm using a simple search on all local drives and my user with File Name, Text Content (fuzzy) and Spotlight Comment (fuzzy). Why would Spotlight find it while HS did not? (And, what do I do about it?)

Thank you.

HoudahSpot builds upon the same index as Spotlight. It should find the same results.

My guess is that your HoudahSpot query is somehow configured to exclude the Entourage messages.

Is it set to look where the messages are stored?
Is it set to exclude that location?
Does it have a "content kind/type" criterion?
