Using just 2 PST Files. One 14Gb archive one 2Gb live file.
With Outlook 2016 one is given 5 levels of searching:
Current Folder, Subfolder, Current Mailbox, All Mailboxes, All Outlook Items
Searches executing successfully.
Can sort search results by all the expected email parameters: sort by subject, flag status, to, from, folder...any of them - no problem. Even hundreds of mails skitter into order instantly upon selection.
But, if I choose sort by date, the output hangs, and just shows "Searching..."
However, this ONLY happens when the Search Level selected is All Mailboxes, All Outlook Items. Searches run at Current Folder, Subfolder, Current Mailbox levels can sort by date, instantly arranged upon clicking.
What do you think is happening?
I'm going to rebuild the Search Index and scan the PST files for errors next.
