Windows 7: Windows 7 + Outlook 2007 + Windows Search

Windows 7 + Outlook 2007 + Windows Search

Hi

Windows 7 RC1
Outlook 2007 SP1 using Exchange 2007
Windows Search
Fully Patched System

In Outlook using cached mode I'm having issues searching my e-mail. It seems to have issues indexing my latest emails. When I go to Tools | Instant Search | Indexing Status, it says I still have 2888 emails to index.

I've tried rebuilding the index but still have this issue. I actually have this on two machines running the same software.

If I take off cache mode everything indexes properly. I did a Google search and saw a thread mention encrypted messages in OST files but no messages are encrypted so that shouldn't be an issue.

Has anyone noticed this?

Thanks

Michael

maybe this is a problem of windows7? did you check if your .ost file is corrupt?

If i were you, iŽd change to an external search tool like Lookeen.
This tool will index your e-mails very fast and searches even faster than all other tools i know. Check it, i think youŽll be amazed

Hi,
I'm having same problem with my windows 7 ultimate and outlook 2007. Search has been working fine on outlook 2007, until I recently installed some software and printer drivers. (I don't know what caused it) Search seemed to not work for recent emails, but it would work for older emails. So I used Start/Control Panel/Indexing Options and did a Rebuild of the index. After that, all my emails cannot be searched. Does anyone have a fix for this?
thanks,
Peter
