Against any sort of logic, running email searches in Outlook on one of my development machines no longer returns any results for even the simplest searches.
I am running Windows 7 and Office 2007 on my development machine. On another, older development machine I am running Windows XP with Office 2007.
Now the strange thing is the inconsistency in how both versions of Office run. I’m not sure if it is the OS or some other factor, but the completely mystifying problem of Outlook on my Windows 7 machine not searching emails correctly appeared that I could not duplicate on my XP machine.
