I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing.

How big is the Sent Items folder?

First make sure that Windows Search is turned on (Control Panel / Programs and Features / Turn Windows features on or off).

Second, make sure that the Outlook folder is used in Outlook Options / Search / Sources / Indexing Options. Check that there are not too many other folders listed, to minimize the size of the index.
