Outlook search not working

I'm using Outlook 2007 on Vista.  I have an IMAP account setup.  When I use the search located above the messages that defaults with text "Search Inbox", it is never able to find anything.    I search on a specific From or Subject that I can see in the Inbox but the search always returns zero results.   Is this specific to IMAP or is there something else I need to do?

Hello brettr,

Outlook search does not support IMAP folders.  You need to use a third party program like Google Desktop Search of MSN Desktp Search to index and then find the emails.

Hope this helps!

Just when I thought Outlook was coming around with IMAP.  I set it up yesterday and starting liking it.   Back to Outlook Express.
