I upgraded a client laptop with Outlook 2011 for MAC, connected to an Exchange 2010 server.  For some reason, the search does not return any results.  Any ideas what this could be?

Has the hard drive had been included in the privacy setting under the Spotlight preferences?

Go to Settings -> Spotlight -> Privacy
Ensure the drive you have your email stored on is not present in Privacy

Go to Settings -> Spotlight
Ensure email is turned on

Then open "terminal"
and type either
sudo mdutil -i on /ReplacePathToOutlookFolder
or
sudo mdutil -i on /Users
or just do the entire drive
sudo mdutil -i on /
