Outlook 2007 Clients dont use Exchange 2003 Index

Our company uses the index function within Exchange 2003 to search for items within Public Folders.

Up until now we have used Outlook 2003 clients and all has worked fine.

However we have upgraded a couple of clients to 2007 and they refuse to search the public folders using the index and hang the client (the old 2003 clients still work fine).

I have tried this with and without windows desktop search installed.

Any ideas why this is not working?

Thanks

Cached mode?
If the client is in cached mode then it doesn't use the index.

Tried with both cached mode enabled and disabled already, made no difference.

Cached mode is the only reason I can think of, unless Microsoft removed the functionality from Outlook 2007. That wouldn't surprise me because everyone is encouraged to use cached mode with Exchange as much as possible.

Solution is that Outlook 2007 only seems to be able to search Exchange 2007 public folder when using the index feature.
