I am running exchange 2007 SP2, and everytime anyone tries to search using OWA, it doesn't work, it comes up with the following error message:
"search results may take a long time to appear because Microsoft exchange serach is unavailable.  Results will not include matches in the e-mail body".

Does anyone know how I can fix this?

    I noticied that the "microsoft search (exchange)" service was disabled, so I started it and set it to automatic, does anyone know if this is the fix for it?

    But it still doesn't work.  I tried restarting the IS store service, but I still get the same message.  I guess I will have to restart the server, but I can't do that until after business hours, so I will do that at 6 pm tonight.

    Thanks, it looks like it took it a few hours for it to kick in, but it's working now.
