I recently installed Outlook 2007 on Windows 2003 operating system.

I previously used Outlook 2003 and I had no problems searching – I could search for Emails or Contacts or Tasks that contained a certain word, and I would always get a correct list of the Emails/Contacts/Tasks that contained that word.

Now, on Outlook 2007, the search box in the top right part of the screen doesn’t work for me. No matter which search terms I use, the result always is "no matches found" – even when I see emails in my Inbox with the search term, or Contacts in the contact list with the search term, or Tasks on the task list with the search term.

I would greatly appreciate any advice on how to make the "search" function work. Thank you very much.
