    Hi there.

    Now that Vista and Office 2007 have been RTM'd, I have installed Windows
    Vista and then opened Windows Mail to check a separate issue on a Vista

    I then installed Office 2007 and connected to our company Exchange Server.

    Unfortunately I now find that Vista Search only finds indexed Windows Mail
    items and not any Office 2007 Outlook items.

    I have followed the suggestion of changing Start Properties menu to point to
    Microsoft Office Outlook and then rebooted and have even rebuild entire
    search index again, but it still only indexes Windows Mail items instead of
    Microsoft Office Outlook!

    Any ideas on how I can get Vista to index Office 2007 Outlook instead of
    Windows Mail?

    give it some time. My index took a couple of days to complete due to it
    wanting to wait for idel time to index

  3. If you open the Indexing Options Control Panel, and select Modify, you
    should be able to see whether the indexer has detected your Outlook stores.

    One possibility is that by default only locally-cached stores are indexed.
    There's a Group Policy that can change this behavior.
