I use Outlook 2016 for my now redundant email, and forwarding email address.


I do general searches in Outlook with no results appearing, since updating my account profile in Outlook from to At first I thought perhaps I deleted a particular email I was searching for, but after scrolling through many messages I spotted it.


How do I rebuild Outlook's search, so it searches every email I've received and sent from either my or account?


Many thanks

Stevie, I'm thinking you'll have resolved this by now?


I had a similar problem with Office 365 which was fixed after a Windows clean reinstall.  I exported the PST file to another drive, and pointed to it with the new installation, and it was all working properly again.  I do seem to remember reading that Outlook was having indexing issues a year or two back.
