Hello, My first question is about an annoying fact: Magnifying glass does not move when searching messages in Outlook 2010. This brings me to an " uncertain" state of mind as I don't know if the searching is over and the result set is reliable. The second question is about searching itself: if you try to search for a word that is CONTAINED in another word, Outlook does not find it. For example, if you look for " babble" and there ARE messages with the word " psychobabble " , Outlook isn't able to find it. Instead, if the words are not together it words (" psycho babble" ). I've tried to use different kinds of wildcards like *, % ... with no luck. I've tried also to disable windows search: nothing to do with it. Thanks in advance, Luigi.
