Outlook 2010 Search Issue

ProjNet asked
Last Modified: 2015-08-25

I have a problem with a machine which has Outlook 2010 on. When I try and search for an email which I sent and its sitting in the Sent items the search function will only show emails which are sitting in the Inbox and no other folders.

So lets say I have emailed Joe Blogs and if you go to the sent items you can see the email. If I then go to search and enter Joe Blogs the search will only show emails which are in the inbox and not show any emails that are in the sent folder or any other folders.

Here are the things I have tried

Repaired Outlook
Created a new mail profile
Re-indexed the machine
