While trying to attach files to a new email using the Insert File dialog (in Microsoft Outlook 2010), the dialog's search textbox does not seem to work.

It simply fails to display any search results; no error message is displayed.

The exact same query works almost instantly using Explorer's in-built search feature, however.

Does anyone know how to fix this?


(Assuming Windows 7):

By default that dialog opens to Libraries -> Documents, so if your file isn't somewhere within that folder (or it's sub-folders) it's not going to find it.

When you open Explorer, by default it points at "Libraries", so it has a wider search scope (by default).
