I had a server crash a while back.. I used ost's to move email to a PST and then into an new Exchange 2007 message store. The client has a wierd issue. When they do a find it starts from the date this happened .. June 30/2010.. It then searches backward and then finally forward... The client has 5000+ emails in the inbox and 60000 in his mailbox.. the search takes forever to find the new emails... Any help would be appreciated..

here's how to fix it:

note that outlook will NOT move more than 1000 files at a time, so break them up instead of "select all"
