    New weird behavior (or, why can't they leave well enough alone?)

    Sometimes, after reading and then closing an email in Outlook (365) and returning to the inbox, I press the delete key to delete the email just read, and nothing happens. Then, I click on the Home tab and the Delete icon there - and nothing happens. Eventually, function is restored. But why...

    Search not accurate, but not indexing

    I don't have Office 2019 - I have Microsoft 365, and I think I did this, but I'll try it again. What's working for me right now is - I created a batch file (that I have to run with admin rights) that stops and then starts the Windows Search Service. Then I start Outlook, and my searches work...

    Search not accurate, but not indexing

    As of today - simple searches - not VBA ones, just simple strings entered into the search bar - are no longer working. I get "Searching..." and never receive ANY results. No one else is seeing this problem? How do I resolve this? I have an open case (I think?) with Microsoft, but am not...

    Search not accurate, but not indexing

    Am I the only one experiencing this problem with searching in Outlook? Even if I remove the date criteria from my search - only results from 4 days ago and before are returned...

    Search not accurate, but not indexing

    Well, today I'm not getting any results, so I suspect either a problem with the recent Windows update and search indexing, or corruption in my profile? This is very frustrating, because my VBA searches frequently have issues - but, other times they work fine so I'm pretty sure the VBA code is...

    Search not accurate, but not indexing

    I can't see how to edit my post, but that search string should NOT have emoticons in it! Should be (folder:Inbox OR folder: (All Mail) ) received: (>=" & variable & ")" (without the extra spaces in there).

    Search not accurate, but not indexing

    Is this a VBA issue, an Outlook issue, or a Windows issue? I'm using Outlook for MS 365, and recently got a Windows 10 update (Windows 10 Home, v 10.0.19042 Build 19042). Now, my VBA advanced searches return some results, but not all. Today, for example, with a variable set to 24 hours ago...

    Profiles and accounts and PSTs and OSTs

    I guess I had some free Office apps, plus some holdover installation files from an install I was able to do via work (Education), plus my 2013 installation, and everything was just confused. I used the Office "cleanup" tool to deinstall everything, and installed from my Office 365 account, and...

    Profiles and accounts and PSTs and OSTs

    I've been having TONS of problems with indexing and searching in OL 2013, lately, so I bit the bullet and subscribed to Office 365, and downloaded Outlook 365 tonight. I let Outlook's auto account set up guide me through setting up my accounts, but noticed that I still had issues with the...

    Outlook with Office365 - search across account, by date rate, in multiple folders - how?

    Diane, as usual, thank you for this. Any idea how to specify the folderpath to the Gmail "All Mail" folder? It's not returning results from that when I replace "Sent" from your code above with "All Mail". And, while I'm at it - how can I have a rolling 24 hour period searched, instead of "today?"

    Outlook with Office365 - search across account, by date rate, in multiple folders - how?

    I'm on Outlook from Office365. Not crazy about it. I have many email accounts, and would like to clean up old email across the board. I want to use the search box at the top to search for a date range, in ALL accounts, across multiple folders - like "folder:(All Mail)...

    Why won't Title display in message list?

    Using Outlook for Office 365. My Outlook account shows up as an Exchange account. When I look at the "Outlook properties" for someone (internal to my school district) who sends me an email, I can see their Title. When I add either the Job Title or Title column to my message list view, it's...

    How to use VBA to show only items x days old or more

    I'm using the Unified Inbox vba from this site because ... well, because I can't believe MS hasn't built this in, yet! But I'd also like to be able to use similar code to search for messages based on their age, in days. How would I do that? I don't want to use "yesterday," or "this week."...

    Quick Parts signatures suddenly require more letters

    I use quick parts to insert audience-appropriate signatures (internal, external, casual) to my outgoing emails. I preface the quick part names with sig:, so I have sig:Inside, sig:Outside, sig:Casual. We had a "rebranding" here that required me to change my external and internal signatures. I...
