Can't search old emails

About a week ago Outlook 2007 stopped searching older emails for me. I'd type in a keyword in the search bar and it would only search emails that were more recent than Dec 2. I know that there are older emails that contain the words that I'm searching because i can look at an older email and search a random word from that email and it won't return that email in the search results. I'm sure there's got to be a simple setting that I just need to change, but I've tried everything I can think of and have researched this on MS' support resources and still haven't been able to get it working.

You might need to rebuild your search index. Are the older messages still in your Inbox or have they been moved to archive?
