First approach for this would be to rebuild the search indexes for each of the mailboxes.

Reset Search Indexes

If that does not work what Exchange 2010 SPversion are you running? Also what RU (roll up) are you running?

This appears to be been corrected in SP1 RU6.

They are in fact safe. I personally would do this for each individual mailbox database. I dont like running the /all command. I would only run it on the databases that require it.

Another thing to mention is that when you run this it does tax the Exchange server as well. So doing something like this off hours would be preferred.
