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.

It is possible that your administrator has blocked via GPO. Check with them first. If this is not the case try modifying the registy...
