The research came
with a bit more than I expected 'cause the engine went to some webmail based accounts: Yahoo and MSN. I could click in the results and opened my Yahoo Mail inbox page without a password. Maybe some password lost in my HD? Maybe some page cached?

http://desktop.google.com/index.html enumerates the file types that Google Desktop Search currently indexes. Your IE cache and Outlook correspondence will also get indexed, so you could have been looking at either a page from your browser cache, or a page you manually saved to your hard drive. The program itself most certainly does not include functionality to index remote, web-based mailboxes such as Yahoo and MSN.
