The Find tool (and Advanced Find) searches across folders in a single Personal Folders file or in your Exchange Server mailbox. However, it cannot search subfolders in another user's mailbox or in a public folder.
You can get searchable subfolders in a public folder by adding one of the tools on this page which generally rely on index server technology.
Personal search tools are listed at Personal Tools
