We have a user that recently got a new system (windows 7/office 2013) but is complaining about not being able to find some items in a secondary mailbox that she has full access to.  She says that search terms are not returning the same number of results as her old machine (office 2010) did for messages just within the last couple months.  Aside from a new outlook profile and rebuilding the index (which completed), not sure what else to try.

This has been solved in another thread some time back .. regarding the same issue

Solution is to map the mailbox as a secondary account in Outlook, instead of additional mailbox

Control panel--Profile--email accounts--new account

This account will be configured when outlook is closed

try this way, let the indexing status will be 0, while going to search options, then try to search the emails

it will fix the issue

Thanks,
Andy

actually, it was a secondary mailbox originally - there was no indexing at all that way thus not able to search anything

configuring a second account defeats the purpose of the design of having the mailbox automatically appear since the user already has full access

This has been solved in another thread some time back

where?

try this way, let the indexing status will be 0

indexing status is already 0; it shows everything is indexed
