Issues with searching emails in outlook after exchange upgrade

I updated our exchange 2013 version to CU19 we are running on 2012 server. The install went on fine it didn't fix the issue we were having and it created at least one more issue. The emails are flowing internally and externally fine, but when I have my outlook open (2013) I can not use the search box. So I'm in my inbox and click in search type in whatever I'm trying to locate and it comes back with 0 emails. Any ideas on how to fix this would be appreciated

try this:
his workaround works until fix provided by Msft:

The fix is expected in the next major update. Until then, you can workaround the issue by enabling Show as Conversations.
In the Outlook Ribbon click the View tab.
Click the check box for Show as Conversations.
Optionally apply to This folder only.

Here's another:

And if none of above works, make sure that all the exchange services (specially search ones) are running on the server.

Have you at least attempted to rebuild the Exchange database content indexes?  If not, it's worth the attempt (see references below).  I don't have the same issue as Jose documented above with Exchange 2013 CU19.

I apologize the search is working now. Another reboot to the exchange server and it started working. I tried to reboot it before I create this ticket but it didn't work the first time for some reason
