in reply to Search pst files

Outlook's pst files are in a proprietary binary format and you can't just search it like a text file.

If you are on Windows and have Outlook installed you can use Mail::Outlook.

Alternatively you can convert the pst file to a text format using a tool such as libpst. See Searching and extracting data from PST files for an example.
