Outlook 2007: Is there a keyboard shortcut for Find text in an email?

Pressing "Ctrl+F" would forward the message. Then, is there a keyboard shortcut for finding text in an email? (Think Adobe PDF Ctrl+F or Word Ctrl+F)

"EDIT: To search within an e-mail, ALT+HFD will bring up the Find dialog without having to add it to the Quick Access Toolbar.

Back when I thought you were asking about searching through e-mail items in Outlook:

From your Inbox just hit Ctrl+E. This will focus the Instant Search box for searching the contents of e-mail. Alternately, Ctrl+Alt+A will focus the search box for Search All Mail Items."

While you have a message open. In the upper right hand is a "Find" button. Right click it and add to quick access toolbar. Then press ALT+6 or whatever number outlook has assigned to the button.
