Find/Search function doesn't find emails?

    Hi,

    I was trying to find an email in my Inbox. I right clicked inbox and chose
    find/search.

    I put in the user's name, no items. I put in the subject, no items. I
    finally found the email manually and I copied and pasted the subject into the
    Find subject and it STILL didn't find it.

    What is up with Vista and it's lack of finding anything? I just HATE the
    whole index thing. I want to actually FIND all files and not just one the
    ones it chooses to index.

    I am not sure why Windows Mail isn't finding things but it should at least
    find everything with the keyword I entered.

    Is there a way to force it to index the whole list of all emails? I can't
    seem to figure out Windows Vista Search at all. Boy, do I miss XP.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks
    Lara

    ..
    It often helps to search for their full email address, not just their name.

    No, I tried that. I tried email and name etc. I did an entire re-index of my
    documents folder so maybe that will fix it.
