I have learned some more on this problem.
Take a look at the following, I think this is where the problem resides:
1. Determine if you are searching a .pst or .ost.
How?
1. In your Inbox, click the single arrow next to the Search All Mail Items box.
2. Click Search Options.
3. In the Indexing section, see if the following check boxes are selected:
· Personal Folders
· Mailbox –
2. If you think that the messages are stored in other data files besides a .pst or the .ost, clear the check boxes (if necessary) and then try your search again.
If you are searching a data file other than a .pst or an .ost, and Instant Search still isn’t finding the messages, see if you have your Outlook e-mail account set to use Cached Exchange Mode. If so, turn off Cached Exchanged Mode and then try your search again.
When I do the above, there is no Mailbox –
