Hello Experts,

I'm once again unable to search in Outlook.

It was suggested that Windows Search might be disabled.

Cans someone show me how to turn on Windows Search?

I'm running Windows Server 2008 R2

Cheers

Carlton

Go to Programs and Features, Windows Features and turn on (Select) Windows Search. Windows 2008 is laid out a bit different but it has Windows Features and that is where you enable Search.

You can also look in Services to make sure Indexing is running.

Here is a Microsoft article with the steps to install and configure the indexing service on Server 2008. It says Indexing is not installed by default on Server 2008, so if it was not installed already on your Server, you should follow this article.
