I have an Exchange 2013 standand alone installation. And since January, cannot search emails in Outlook Web and Outlook.
What could I do?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. 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. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Hi Mart,

Could you check if the index shows healthy.

Run the following command:

Get-MailboxDatabaseCopyStatus *

Hi Mart,

You need to rebuild the index.

-Stop the “Microsoft Exchange Search service” and the “Microsoft Exchange Host Controller.”
- Delete the Existing CI catalog folder
- Start both services again
