Honored experts.

I'm having a strange problem within Office Outlook 2007.
When I use the search function from the top for some reason it only locates items from one single folder located deep under the "inbox".

This means that even id I stand on the inbox it only shows results from this folder below.

All updates seems to be applyed??

Any suggestions? :-)

At the top of your Inbox search bar there are three controls on the right;
Magnifying glass
Single Drop Down Arrow
Double Drop Down Arrow

If you click the single Drop Down Arrow and select search options a popup window will appear. At the bottom of this window you can tell it to search all folders.

Please try this and let me know if this works.

What folder(s) do you want to search?

You can set the Search options to include results form all folders or the current folder.

Is the box 'search subfolders checked (towards the bottom, when you're prompted to select folders)?'
