Yes.

Yes. Add squatter EVENT(s) for the mailboxes that you'd like to index,
assuming that the mailbox grows (so that new messages get added to the
index). If the mailbox is static, just run squatter on it by hand.

I would only bother doing this for large mailboxes, since that is where
you will see the greatest performance gain.
