For the last 2-3 days when i do a search in the bar above the messages it searches and then says "outlook is still indexing files". It has done this before but not for this long, what can be done to speed up the indexing or what is the issue?

Hello rattleme,

Do you have Outlook 2007 on Vista?

You can disable indexing in Vista.  Scroll down to the subtopic Disabling Vista

Do you have Windows Desktop Search or Google Search?  What is indexing?

You can start the indexing again, or stop the indexing through the respective program.

Oultook 2007 uses Windows Desktop Search to do indexing.  Disable the indexing or restart it.
