Why is finding a message by message-id so hard in Outlook ?

In Notes you can do a simple, e.g.

Set{$messageid = "}+ strMessageID+{"}, Nothing, 0)

Doing the same thing with Outlook requires you to locate the IPMRootFolder folder, then you need the recursively search each of the subfolders until you find the message.

Certainly not as easy, and my guess is it takes significantly more processing time.
