No search results in Outlook 2007 on Windows Vista

I got no results (or limited result) returned when searching for e-mail items using Instant Search in Outlook 2007 on Windows Vista.

I tried the suggestions mentioned in the help but to no avail. Then I tried to run the Inbox Repair Tool SCANPST.EXE found on my machine in C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office12

I run it on all PST files and there where errors found in all of the files.

I also run a rebuild of the index just to be sure and it seems like using the Inbox Repair Tool was the solution to the problem.

But the irritating thing is that after a few days the PST got corrupted again. Outlook should really be better at notifying when problems arise like this.

  2. This WORKED immediately.
    Found errors - repaired them
    Now no more data file repair needed when outlook 07 opens - and it is blisteringly FAST!!!

    Thanks

  3. another solution would be using a search tool like lookeen, in my opinion the best way to get what you are searching for.
