Hello,

I have a shared mailbox on a Exchange 2007 Sever (Windows 2008)

with name "Team".

If the Client PC opens the "Team" mailbox as a primary mailbox and do

any search the result will be instant. (the mailbox inbox contains

around 5000-7000 e-mails)

Now, if the Client PC opens the "Team" mailbox as Secondary /

Additional and do any search it may take up to 2-4 minutes.

The Client PC is Windows Vista wsp1.

There are not any network issues.

Any ideas ?

Thank you

btw, i'm using online mode for both mailboxes with Outlook 2007 SP1

(iow, non-cached mode)

Move them to subfolders. Keep the max number of items in any given folder to

under 3000. Heck, I'd keep it to under 100 if possible and treat it as a to

do list. The max number of items is the reason this is a problem, more than

the mailbox size.

That's another major issue. Use cached mode and set the shared folders to

cache as well.

Re: Slow Search on Secondary / Additional Mailbox in Exchange Clie

We had a similar issue.

Disabling the microsoft exchange search indexer service, searches went back

to exchange 2003 speeds.
