XP Pro machine on network using Outllook 2007 .ost file with Exchange on SBS 2008.  One of the machines is indexing, basically all day and may have started indexing all over, again.  None of us initiated this and it seems to be takiing all day, and, it seems to have started over, as it was at 73,000 items earlier and now is at 63,000 items indexed and still working.  I have had a problem like this before, but don't remember what to do to manually reset and start the indexing over.  I think there is some specific issue to address, not simply that it needs indexing, more like it's confused and this is a known issue with a spefiic remedy?

If you have more than 5000 items in one folder it can do this.
