Use the Indexing Feature to Enhance Searching Capabilities

This article applies to recent versions of SmarterMail. View articles for SmarterMail 15.x and earlier.

SmarterMail supports content indexing which will allow your server to index emails, contacts, appointments, notes, and more for faster, more efficient searching. While the default settings will function very well for the vast majority of customers, some administrators may decide they wish to change some settings.

NOTE: Changing these settings can adversely affect the performance of the SmarterMail server. When upgrading from a previous version of SmarterMail your existing data will automatically begin indexing. This process may take some time, but runs in the background and should not affect the performance of your server.
