    And below this message, the results of the successful search :mlp_facehoof:



  • Maybe it encountered an error before it could deliver the last search result.

    @lb_ The error appeared when the search started. The search then ran to successful completion, finding all the revelant emails.

    Found your problem.

    Seriously though, I always have problems with Outlook search. It's possible I should maybe do more with inbox folders and better categorization or something, but Outlook search is always the most fiddly thing I have to use on a day-to-day basis at work.

    It didn't say it couldn't search, it said it couldn't complete the search. Reading comprehension.

    At least you only have problems with the search. Since the last release, my Outlook doesn't even connect to the Exchange server at all. I have to use fucking IMAP, which defeats the whole purpose of Outlook. And as an additional bonus, replies sent from another computer sometimes won't show up in Outlook, despite being saved in the correct folder.

    Outlook 2016 is a buggy piece of shit and should die in a fire.
