Outlook 2013 search tools greyed out RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi guys,

    So my issue is Outlook 2013 search tools greyed out. When I add Outlook to the indexing options they are accessible but the search does not provide any results. If I remove OL from Indexing and I manually search I get the data. Any ideas?
