Microsoft Outlook email searches broken in Windows 11

Microsoft is investigating an issue causing Outlook search not to display recent emails in desktop apps running on Windows 11 systems

Outlook's search feature uses the local Windows Search service to index emails

The problem affects POP, IMAP, and offline Exchange accounts

Microsoft 365 and connected Exchange accounts use Service Search so they are not impacted

Microsoft explains, "When searching in Outlook Desktop on Windows 11 you might not see the most recent emails in the search results"

The company is currently working on addressing this known issue

Until a solution is available, the company has shared a temporary fix for affected customers

Microsoft advises Windows 11 users to prevent the bug by disabling Windows Desktop Search and switching to Outlook's built-in search engine
