I know the search all fields option searches all fields but I'm not sure
what check names checks by default. Create a dummy account in the AD and
put unique text in each of those fields and see what is found (it may be up
to 24 hours before outlook can find the new account).

Outlook doesn't search for partial words - A search for 'bert' will find
Bert & Bertha but not robert or ebert. If you are putting the display name
in as Robert "Bob" Smith, you need to search for "Bob" (with quotes or even
just "b), not Bob.
