    Hi,
    PST indexing is helpful to search any data file in Outlook.If you assume that this function is not working then you can resolve this problem by doing these steps :

    1 – Verify that data files are indexed or not

    2 – Check the status of indexing process completed or not

    3 – Verify that Outlook is able to index data items or not

    4 – Now rebuild the search catalog to know details of all indexing files in Outlook and Windows

    Now, you can get better result with searching data in Outlook.

    There is a handy tool in your Office installation folder that can diagnose and repair errors in your PST file. It will determines whether the file structure is intact. And if not, it will reset your file structure and rebuilds it.
    It's called Scanpst.exe and is installed when you install Outlook.
    Look for it in C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\OFFICE12.
