Outlook Search Function after Exchange Migration

Hi,

We migrated hardware for a SBS server and ever since there is a problem searching through the email in Outlook. If you use the find function on the outlook client it starts searching from the day we migrated (August 08) and searches all the way through (the 22,000 emails) before it comes to the new items to search.
I've tried archiving the mail and reimporting, no change.
Any ideas?

And if cached exchange mode is off, is it the same?

Also try:

Turn Off Cached Exhcange Mode
Search for *.ost
Rename the OST. to .old
Turn Cached Exhcange Mode back on to create a new ost

Then test

Right - just wanted to check the system - sorry for the delay.
This isn't specific to the workstation - all workstations experience the same problems. So if I do a search on another PC, it starts the results from August 08.
The rebuild of OST's has been done before with no resolution.
