Unable to search in Microsoft Outlook

Hi Experts,

I've been having some problems at the beginning of the week with Microsoft Outlook, where indexing initiated and stopped me from being able to search in my Outlook until completion. Following on from that, once the indexing had completed, it still didn't allow me to search.

To try and resolve this, I initiated the indexing again to no avail, and have followed most online suggestions I can from Microsoft to fix the issue, but I'm still not able to search in any folder, even though I know the items are there.

Could you perhaps try and assist with this issue please? I need to be able to search in my e-mail daily, and this is having an impact on the efficiency of my work.

I think you may prefer it to Windows Search for normal searches in Windows.

What do you mean by that?  No Search option?  No results from Search?

Do your indexing options include Outlook?  (It is the same Control Panel|Indexing Options as Windows.)

The search still carried out no results after indexing, despite searching on key fields that I knew would bring up results in the folders that I was searching in (Inbox and Sent Items).

yes my indexing option does include outlook.
