Outlook 2011 - the first was merely a nuisance - it changed my name, title and company in my signature to a red font. Nothing else, just those three things. Strange to say the least.
The bigger problem is with my instant search in Outlook. No matter what I search for (such as my own name) it comes back empty. I tried rebuilding my identitiy with no luck. Same goes for contacts. Any ideas?
It was my Outlook search that was broken, and yes, this fixed it. I had not even tried searching email directly from Spotlight.
Just to be clear: my Outlook search was broken because I had moved my "Microsoft User Data" directory from it's default location in Documents. The only reason you would try this solution is that at some point in the past you had also moved your "Microsoft User Data" directory. Otherwise you'll just be breaking stuff.
