Hello Experts,
We are using the archiving feature of outook 2010.  I have end users complaining about not being able to search on emails in there archive folder.  They would do a search and find email in there main pst file but in there arcive pst file.  Is there any way to include all the pst files in one search ?

    ...If you are searching from Outlook you will not be able to search all at once. In order to search the Archive .pst in Outlook you have to highlight the Archive Folders and tehn type the search criteria, however in Windows 7 you should be able to search any of the archive folders by issuing the search from the start menu, then look for the Outlook values that have been returned. Hope this helps.
