I am having a problem with the search feature in Outlook 2007. No search I
enter returns any results. I have WDS search installed and configured to
index Outlook. The index has been rebuilt and says no items left. I have
tried the old fashioned earch CTRL+SHIFT+F and this doesn't return anything
either. Any sugestions.

XP Pro SP2 fully updated
Outlook 2007 Fully updated.Connected to MS Exchange 2003.

Thanks,

Aaron

Aaron--

Just went through this discussion list, and there was a big talk about it a
couple weeks ago. A guy named David Kirk wrote this suggestion, and many said
it worked for them. I might wait until Microsoft officially acknowledges the
problem and says what to do, but here's what David said:

This was the solution for me. Just delete the files as indicated, reboot and
let it start to index all over again:

Delete all files and folders in these directories:

C:\programdata\microsoft\search\data\temp
C:\programdata\microsoft\search\data\applications\windows
