MS Outlook 2007 indexing Options (Win 7 Pro 64)
Posted on 2014-02-13
I have outlook set to access several .PST files in the left column of Mail Item Folders.
(These are organized by quarter)
For whatever reason i had to "repair pst" for my main outlook file. It works fine.
Indexing disappeared for all but the current (main) inbox/deleted/sent etc folders.
The Tools> InstantSearch> IndexingOptions> list of files (mail folders)
shows the complete list, and when i check the folders to be indexed,
the checkboxes are sticky when i return to that dialogue box in the same outlook launched process (and parallel-launched Outlook copies also show the correctly checked folders).
However when i do as it says to OK the menu and restart Outlook (in order for the
indexing to take effect), the checkboxes are no longer checked.
How can i get these selections to be sticky (persistent), and thus get indexing "for all mail folders" to work again?
