To accomplish this do the following...
- Open Outlook, click Tools, Instant Search, Search Options
- Under Indexing, make sure that your "Personal Folder" is listed under "Index messages in these data files:"
- At the bottom of Search Options Window, Under Instant Seach Pane, select "All Folders"
- Click OK
Testing
- Find an email that you "know" is in your Personal Folder
- Click Tools, Instant Search, Search All Mail Items
- Type in the Name of that email from "Personal Folder"
- you should see a tab called "Outlook Data File" and this will tell you where the file has been located

Hope this helps~!

The buttons for Indexing and text box is greyed out.  I wonder if IT has something to do with this.  Maybe it is locked down.
