Microsoft's PC e-mail client Outlook 2007 includes a feature called Instant Search, which allows you to quickly search multiple mailboxes for messages based on search criteria. By default, Outlook keeps a history of all the searches you perform. However, if you do not want to keep a history of your searches, you can disable the feature and delete your current Outlook search history.
