Outlook won't index with Windows seach function

Last Modified: 2015-02-26
I just upgraded a few Windows 7 Pro machines to Office 2013.  The search feature inside of outlook is working, but I cannot get Windows searching to find anything in outlook.  I've rebuilt the index multiple times, I've verified that Outlook is in the index locations in the Indexing options of Windows, and I've removed outlook and re-added it to the indexing a couple of times and it still will not work.  Does Outlook 2013 just not integrate with Windows search any longer?  I can't believe they would take that step, and even if they did, you would think the would be information about that all over the internet.  Any suggestions?
