My Computer - Windows 7, Outlook 2007, Public Folders Cached for Windows Desktop Search

Server - SBS 2003 R2

Trying to determine an issue with Outlook2007 in Windows 7 with Public Folders Cached to allow Windows Desktop Search 4.0 to view items we have in public folders. When trying to use the search above the displayed contents of a public folder " Instant Search I believe" , it will only come up with " No Matches Found for X" , however, if I jump to the web interface, search works fine. If I go to an XP machine, the instant search works as well. I believe it is a desktop search issue, my question is this by design (i.e. never meant to work together) or am I missing something on a setting somewhere?

You can try rebuilding your index via Control Panel, Indexing Options, Advanced, Rebuild.
