Hi All,

I have enabled the Archiving for my mailbox but when I try to search Archive mailbox in Outlook it doesn't find anything.  If I try the search in OWA it works just fine.

I re-built the archive database and it worked for 1 day.  Then re-built the 2nd time with no luck.

We have Exchange 2010 sp3 with the latest rollups.

Any suggestions?

If it works fine in OWA then there is no problem with the database on server. You must consider checking the Outlook indexing. Check if archive mailbox is included in indexing files or try to rebuild the index in Outlook.

But archive mailbox in online mode, I thought it doesn't use the Outlook indexing?
