One of my users has encountered this problem:

Vista SP2

Office 2007 Enterprise 2007

Searching in Outlook 2007 returns no results. Attempted to uncheck option to

index mailbox causes this error -> "A problem was encountered while trying to

change which data files to index. Some of those changes may not have been

saved."

Scanpst / Scanost does not show any errors.

In Windows indexing options, Microsoft Office outlook does not show up in

the list "Index these locations".

Any suggestions on how to fix this error?

Tried fully resetting your Search Indexer already?

If a full reset still won't solve this issue consider using third

search/index party software like Lookeen (www.lookeen.net) or lookout.

It may be useful...

Yup! Tried rebuilding the index and resetting to defaults. The issue is that

after rebuilding/resetting, Outlook 2007 still does not show up in the list

of index locations in Vista's indexing options. I'll try a reinstall of

outlook 2007 to see if that helps.

On another note, when I reinstall just outlook 2007, do I have to reapply

office 2007 SP2?

Better is to remove the entire Office 2007 suite if you installed Outlook as

part of that. It's about just as fast as just removing Outlook but can give

you better results. After that, you will have to reinstall Office 2007 SP2

and additional updates again indeed.
