Hi guys,

I have a strange issue.

I have a user who does not seem to be able to search emails in his Outlook.

I have changed
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsSearch\SetupCompletedSuccessfully
And changed it to 0 to reindex.

Although it is reindexing when the pc is rebooted. Once the reindexing completed no actual results come back.

I have also run the office diagnostics tool.

Has anyone got any other tricks I can try.

I ran across something like that last week.  I had to recreate the users outlook mail profile to get the search to work again
