Indexing Problems Outlook 365

I have tried to re-index outlook several times and failed. Particularly problematic is Contacts. It seems that Mail is indexed OK in the Inboxes, but not the PSTs too. I have several emails handled by Outlook, including Exchange, 363 and Is there an instruction sheet that can walk me through the correct way to reindex?

is the pst enabled for indexing? In search tools, locations to search, is the pst listed?
