I've noticed this perceived error before, but I just recently was able to
identify the issue.
I have a Task item in Microsoft Outlook (this issue is not specific to
Outlook tasks, it is a general search issue) with a subject of "Xbox 360
Games" - it is a list of games that I am interested in purchasing. If I
enter the phrase Xbox 360 Games (without quotes) in the start menu search, no
items are found. But if I enter "Xbox 360 Games" (with quotes) in the start
menu search, I find the communication item from Outlook tasks. If I search
for Xbox 360 (without quotes) the item is found, but if I search for Xbox
Games or 360 Games (without quotes) the item is Not found. Very unexpected
I expect Vista Search to find the task item if I put any single word from
the subject or any combination of the words. This is especially true when
dealing with File Names or in this case the Subject of the task. I believe I
found this same problem previously when searching for a specific file and I
entered several words in the file name and did not find the file, but I did
not narrow down the issue at that time.
I am using Vista Home Premium 32 with all the latest updates and Outlook
2003 with SP3.
