I have enabled exchange search for my mailbox database (shell cmd Get-MailboxDatabase |select name, indexenabled returns IndexEnabled=True)
But for some reason there is one mailbox which dont have this enabled (Test-ExchangeSearch <mailbox name> returns ResultFound=False, and SearchTime=-1, where other users returns: ResultFound=True, and SearchTime=8)

I didnt manage to find any command which can enable Exchange Search on a single mailbox, can anybody help me?

Thanks in advance :)

the indexing  is configured at the database level, is possible the index got corrupted but its kinda odd that only 1 mbx is affected.

you can stop the service and delete the catalog folder and restart the service which will reindex the database.

you can look at this as well

--if you look at the script is manually does the steps below :)

1. stop the Microsoft Exchange Search Indexer service
2. Delete the catalog folder
3. Start the service backup
--this will remove the old/corrupted index and build a new one

you can double check you have indexing enabled

I created a case with MS, and ended up exporting content, and recreating the mailbox
