Outlook 2007 - Can't search on anything after 6/19/09

Hello,

When users use the Outlook 2007 search function, they can't get anything past 6/19/09. It's company wide, and we don't use cached exchange mode. The 2 search services on the Exchange server are started, but when I use the Test-ExchangeSearch powershell command, it times out and does not work. I can't find anything in the logs regarding this error. I've restarted the search services, and even the server.

Any ideas out there?

Thanks!

In cmd prompt, navigate to "c:\program files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\Bin" directory.
Type 'regsvr32 MapiProtocolHandlerStub.dll'
'regsvr32 msfte.dll'

Delete the Catalog folder and then restart the Microsoft search (Exchange) and
Microsoft Exchange Search Indexer services.

In the Exchange Management Shell, run test-exchangesearch -identity <testuser>

Thanks lastlostlast,

I am going to try this today. Deleting that Catalog folder won't create any negative effects will it? And if I delete it and restart the services, and it works, will people be able to search on all things past, or just new things since the deletion of the Catalog folder?

Thanks!

Thanks lastlostlast,

Tried this today and it worked like a charm. For anyone else looking at this, it just re-populates the folder and you're good to go. No negative effects from deleting the folder.
