"No matches found" Error in Outlook 2010

Q

Why am I getting this "No matches found" error in Outlook 2010 search? I know I have emails that should match my search term.

When you use Instant Search in Microsoft Outlook 2010, you receive the following message: "No matches found."

Or, only some of the expected results may be returned. If you view the Indexing Status dialog in Outlook, you may see the following warning message: "Search results may be incomplete because items are still being indexed."

This occurs even if you include search criteria for items that do match and Windows Desktop Search (WDS) is configured to index the Outlook Data (.pst) file or Offline Outlook Data (.ost) file. And the indexing process is not completed yet.

If you click on the warning message, you can see the indexing status like, "3853 items remaining to be indexed" as shown below:
Outlook 2007 Is Currently Indexing Your Items
