Performing a full text search through e-mails

Can you use the full text search from SharePoint services on an Exchange 2003 server? I want to full text search through e-mails. How can I do this?

No, if you look at the properties of your stores within Exchange 2003, you'll see a full-text indexing option there. Use that instead. Outlook 2003 and later clients will use FTI (Full Text Indexing) indexes for any searches from the client (using "Find" or "Advanced Find").
