Windows Search and MAPI

Trying to understand the basic functionality of Windows Search.

Does Windows search only index Outlook PST when Outlook is open ?

If so, why does it need Outlook open when it could talk directly to MAPI ?

I'm trying to index a pst and talk directly to MAPI without a need to
have Outlook open.

What are the pros and cons for having Outlook open ?

Yes, I have seen these docs. My question is more about design ...

Are there any issue with going direct to MAPI and not opening Outlook or
is it better to use MAPI inside of Outlook ?

Don't know, sorry. Steve can probably answer that better.
