Unable to search pdf content in outlook for newly documents

Ignacio M 46 Reputation points


I noticed that the Outlook search function is not working for newly documents. In my case, I tried to search words which are on pdf documents with no luck. This is happening from May since I am able to search on older documents.

I tried on both version (desktop and Web). It is an exchange account (office 365) and other mates have the same problem. I already read some suggestions to try to fix (rebuild indexes, etc...) but none of them solve the issue.

Does anyone else have this problem?
