    This is an old post i realize but i'll take a chance…

    I am using search server 2010 express to index folder of .msg files.  It finds 22 properties that it automatically puts in the mail category.  How do i find out what they all are so i can map them to managed properties?  For example there are 2 DateTime properties it finds: Mail:12 and Mail:53.  I have tried using them as both sent and received by mapping each to their own managed property and then searching on a date i know to be a sent/received date for a given msg file but no results come back for anything i search using these fields?  I'm also at a loss on where CC and BCC would be as they don't appear to be in the list, but there are many msg files that have values for CC and BCC so why didn't the crawl pick up/infer these????
