Indexing in Microsoft® Outlook 2010
What are the reasons due to which indexing does not work in Microsoft Outlook 2010?
Microsoft Outlook 2010 is capable to offer premium business and personal e-mail management tools to many users. The Microsoft Outlook 2010 Ribbon are capable of justifying most of the existence with the enclosure of Quick Steps. Then the quick steps in it would allow you to apply multiple actions to messages or appointments by clicking a button in the Quick Step Menu. Microsoft Outlook 2010 would automatically group the related e-mails into conversations just like e-mail. The Microsoft Outlook has got a new search tool known as the Indexing feature which would allow you to perform quick queries for messages. This Indexing function scans and records e-mail and when the indexing stops it’s working the searching also would stop. Then if you face any issue then you would have to restart your PC which would give your Outlook Express more time to finish indexing.

- Due to encryption
- Due to Outlook Error 80401f3
- Microsoft Outlook 2010 is not set as default
