I think I found the source of my problem.
There is a button that says search the file system (slow)
instead of the index. I had that checked. When I took the check
off, things were really fast and emails came up. This makes
sense because searching the file system for emails is
a losing proposition. It also was very slow. Don't check that
thanks for all your help
