I have 1000's of emails in my inbox and various folders. When I do a search for example " Microsoft" the search engine starts the search from the earliest date at the beginning of the mail file, so it finds the email that was received on 01/01/2004 first, then finds the 01/02/2004 file next, etc, etc. This has nothing to do with the received columns or the way I have my inbox sorted. My emails are ordered in my inbox, newest on top, it's just the search logic is starting at the oldest for some reason.

It can take a very long time to search 1000's of emails so I want to start my search from the the newest email, and not have to wait for the results.

As suggested by Diane, ensure to have Instant search installed. Click here to download Windows Search for your computer.
