When I click on a file to use the search function and type in a subject for search, I get this message “search results may be incomplete because items are still being indexed. Click here for more details.” Then I get this dialog box “ Outlook is currently indexing your items.” 65411 items remaining to be indexed.

Am I doing something wrong all of a sudden or has something failed in the Outlook? Thanks and I will do that.

At some point corruption of Outlook data occurred, it repaired itself and now it is re-indexing the data. Re-indexing allows the searches to happen instantaneously. Depending on the size of your data file, it may take as long as 3 days. Keep outlook open and running with lots of resources available (shut other applications down or just reboot and reopen Outlook when you’re done for the night). If it happens often, run a database repair (let me know).
