Outlook email search returns no results

Indexing borked so you get no results when you type in the search box.

What I found to do:

Search | Search Tools | Search Options | Indexing Options

Remove the "Outlook" file and then replace it which forces the index to rebuild.

Elsewhere there is an option to "rebuild the index" but it doesn't seem to have any effect.

The above procedure will cause the index to rebuild. While it is rebuilding you can see its status and as it rebuilds a search will start returning more and more results.
