    Outlook 2019 search not working in contacts, calendar and emails


    Hi

    I have just upgraded from my trusty Outlook 2007 to the new Office 2019 suite of programs. The new Outlook 2019 has been an absolute nightmare in so much as I was not able to search my calendar, contacts, and emails. Read numerous other forums for help and spent days trying out the various solutions, all to no avail. I had backed up all my old data, pst file, reg file, and created a restore point. Non of the searches would allow me to find names, folders, or basically anything. I was stuck.

    Finally I thought I would reinstall my .pst data again form a memory stick, and everything worked perfectly. Hurrah!!

    What I did on the 1st install was to choose File/ Open and Export / Open Outlook Data file (.pst)
    What I had done on the 2nd install was to choose File/ Open and Export / Import/Export. Such a simple solution and I hope it may help someone else.

    Windows 10 Pro - version 1909

    :)

    How to save Outlook settings as well as email, calendar and contacts?


    Export or backup email, contacts, and calendar to an Outlook .pst file - Office Support
    says
    Outlook does not export meta-data such as folder properties (views, permissions, and AutoArchive settings); message rules; and blocked senders lists.


    There are 3rd party tools too- commercial mostly- Mailstore Home is free, but there's no feature description I can find quickly. I have used it in the past, but not for Outlook.
