Hi folks

In workstation with Outlook 2010 instant search stopped working. Outlook is connected to the Exchange server and works in cash mode. Operating system is Windows 7 32 bit. While writing keywords to find a messages appear the picture : see Figure-1.  the number of remaining items has not changed 18 hours. I have done the following things :
In the Control panel  I chose Programs and Features->Turn windows features on or off. What I saw see Figure-2 is a function of indexing is disabled, although the standard installation windows 7 32bit  enabled. Not great retreat : apparently my colleague tried to solve this problem by different ways .
I have turn on this option. After that I did index rebuild, see figure-3 and figure-4. Then I checked the availability of the indexing database in the following folder : see Figure-5 . The values of tmp.edb and files windows.edb not changes with time.
Windows search works and even finds email messages, but inside Outlook search does not work.

Please, help me

How does available disk space look?  I've seen indexing problems occur when a drive lacks space for creating temporary files.  Just a thought.

Have you rebooted since rebuilding the Outlook index?
If that does not help you may find it quickest to use Everything as a search engine for Outlook.

nesher13--You just run a search.  Everything will find all pertinent items on the hard drive including those in Outlook.

But this does not imply search within messages?

nesher13--I do not believe Everything will search inside messages.  But why not try it?
