Can't search archive folder



I have Outlook 2007 (Vista Home Premium SP1), and the search seems to
work only for my outlook.pst folder. I recently moved some contents
to the archive folder, and I can see the messages there.

But, whenever I search it only shows results from my Personal folders,
not the archive folders.

Note: All Mail Items has both Personal and Archive folders checked.
And the indexing status shows everything is indexed.

Any ideas or suggestions? (I'm assuming search is supposed to search
archive folders, right?)

Search will include the archive folder if its part of your profile and if
you have it set to be indexed. You may need to rebuild the index.
