Find feature is slow

Searching for email in Outlook is really slow.  For a while we thought that this was “just the way it is”, perhaps because there’s no indexing for Outlook email, just Windows files.

I was wondering if anyone knows of a problem / work around / or plugin that helps with this issue?  We’ve come across some third party apps (X1, etc), but if this problem is due simply to a misconfigured Outlook profile/settings, we’d rather fix that.

What version of outlook ?
Is outlook fully updated ?

Try detect and repair going to help menu and see if that would change anything

How many emails you have got and find being slow would depend on that

Try checkingthis

How to compact PST and OST files to eliminate deleted item space in Outlook 2002 and Outlook 2003

Check if that would help
