I closed the dialog and checked it again and the number to be indexed had jumped to 280K. The number reported by Indexing Options (178K) has not changed.It looks like there are two independent indexing processes, one for files (reported on by Indexing Options) and one within Outlook. The Outlook indexing completed, the system rebooted, I restarted Outlook a couple times. The number reported by Indexing Options (178K) has still not changed.(Before this indexing problem started, I'd noticed that I got a lot of duplicate hits from the wiki.I did not follow up to confirm that they were in the zipped backups, but I don't know where else they could have been.) Note that my Outlook pst files are large: the active pst file is 7.6Gb, and I have 4 archive files of just over 28Gb total.I've been running the first step for about 1.5 hours and have 50K items indexed. I restarted indexing and after about 8 hours it had gotten to 178,207 items indexed and the "Indexing Options" dialog was just sitting there.
Outlook 2010's folder list has it's own folder list font setting in View A Microsoft Outlook Most Valuable Professional (MVP) since 1999, Diane is the author of several books, including Outlook 2013 Absolute Beginners Book.After 8 hours it was at a slightly higher (178,877) than previously, but again just spinning its wheels.I rebooted, made sure everything I know about which touches the Outlook files was not running and waited an hour: More wheel spinning, but no indexing.Not only can you keep track of important meetings in Outlook, but you can also schedule and invite your contacts to them with a few clicks of the mouse.If plans should change, you can edit the details of a meeting, including the time, date or location, and send the update to your attendees.
If you are using Windows 10, you'll need to open the Control Panel and find Display. I found if I just change the menus size from 9 to 10 it makes the folder list text larger.
