I have Windows 7 installed on the laptop. I am also using Office 2013. E-mail account is created with IMAP. When i go to search--> current folder e-mails appear. If i use search--> All Outlook Items, e-mails appear here as well.
When i use search--> Current Mailbox, this is were i have a problem. Status show "Searching" and it stays like this for a long time. E-mails do not appear when searching under Current Mailbox.

Window Search is shown as Started. I think i found the solution.  In Outlook 2013, go to FILE-OPTIONS-SEARCH-INDEXING OPTIONS. Click MODIFY then uncheck MICROSOFT OUTLOOK. Then closed and restarted Microsoft Outlook 2013. After all this i was able to search for e-mails under Current Mailbox.
