Search not Working for Outlook 2007 Archive.pst File

Outlook 2007 is set to archive to a .PST on the local file server connected to the network on a regular basis.

Search funtion is not working in Archive Folders only.  All other mailbox search is working fine.

Operating Environment:
Vista 64
Outlook 2007
Exchange 2007

Any ideas on how to fix this?

Hello fixitall,

You need to have Archive.pst open in Outlook when search indexing is occuring. Then Search will find the mail.

In Outlook go to File > Open and navigate to where archive.pst is store and open it as a set of personal folders.

Then Rebuild the search indexer

Hope this helps!
