Im having an issue with one user.
The user is using outlook 2010 on windows 7, when searching the results shown do not display the most current emails. For example when searching for" Joe Bloggs" the results will show emails from 2 weeks ago but not the most recent emails received from him.
The search is set to search in all folders and all items have been indexed and i have deleted and rebuilt the index.

If the index is working, my next suggestion would be to rebuild the OST or repair the PST, depending on what email server you are using.
