After a reboot my pst file is completely re indexed every time. Its rather large so it takes an hour to two to finish. Can anyone help me to resolve this?

I've created a test profile named test, can you tell me what you mean by "verify the status"?

Thank you for "explaining a bit more." Clearly you have a much larger problem than just indexing. You remain remarkably stingy with details, however. Perhaps you could start from the beginning with everything you did to create your problem and a complete description of all the problems you are having. For the record, "I brought this file in from a 2003 pst" tells us nothing but is most likely the root of your problems. Please elaborate on that point in particular.Russ Valentine

Russ I'm not sure I have many more details. But I'll try.
I had an older pc with 2003 outlook that the power supply died. I imported that 2003 pst file from that drive into a new laptop that has Outlook 2010.
I imported using the file-open-import-import from another file or program option of outlook. The pst file is located in my documents folder.
\Documents\Outlook Files\steven at offshoreelectrics dot com(at and dot added for spam purposes). I'm wondering if this is my problem.

As for problems, I'm having none except the indexing. Every time I reboot the the laptop the pst file is re-indexed from scratch. So I can not search for emails until its done.

Aha. You should never transfer Outlook data by importing an entire PST file. You probably ended up with more than one PST file in this profile or a corrupt profile. Use Folder List view to check and see. If you want to use a previous PST file in a new installation of Outlook 2010 just connect to that file as you create your new Outlook profile.

You might just want to create a new Outlook profile from scratch and do that so you won't keep having this problem.
