Outlook 2007 Instant Search not working

I am trying to query ip addresses out of emails that I recieve and instant search does not work.  I try to search for 192.168.1.1 and it does not yield any results, if i search just for 168 it comes up but then others come up too.  Any ideas

Search with quotes like this "192.168.1.1" and not 192.168.1.1

Anyway try like this:

192*168*1.1

Take asterisk for first 2 dots and dot for last one like the example shown above

Are you trying to search for an Outlook e-mail sent from an IP address (located in the headers), or are you trying to search for the IP address someone typed in the body of a message?

Out of the body.

I tried multiple ip addresses that i know exist in the bodies of the emails but still no luck.  Annoying

Can I assume you're using Windows XP?  You need to install Windows Search 4.0 before it will work, http://www.microsoft.com/windows/products/winfamily/desktopsearch/default.mspx

Vista/7 Windows Search is builtin, you can also use the Ctrl+Shift+F the legacy search method.

For Vista/7 press Windows+F, in search box type IP address. Your mail will be displayed.

When you use Crtl+Shift+F select subject and body in dropdown it will search your mail.

for Windows+F, check your indexing options. You should index your outlook emails. if it still dont work then plz share a screen cast to see how u use search.
