hi experts,


I’m having problems using my search tool in Outlook. It won’t allow me to search my emails by subject.

I used to be able to type anything in the search box and it would give me emails that had that word, city, etc in the email. Now it’s not providing anything to me.

Are you using Microsoft Exchange server as mail application. If yes, try the same search in Outlook Web Access (Webmail) and verify the search able to be perform.

you should also check your system indexing options function via the Control Panel, and make sure your Outlook application is listed.

would also help if we knew your OS & Outlook/Exchange version. older OS's needed updates/patches for the search functions to work in Outlook.
