Outlook search on Office 365 is ineffective.
Old outlook searches worked well, but the current version doesn't return all emails that contain query terms. It makes outlook basically worthless. There have been numerous posts on this, but apparently no response/resolution. i have copied text from an email, dropped it in the search bar, and had that email be missed in the search. Please put a team on to fix this.
Outlook search has been a poor feature from the days out look was invented. to this day it still lacking. for example you search for certain word in an email you get way too many hits its as if it finding every single letter in the word you are searching for. make no sense. then when you do find the email and single click to highlight that email. it disappears after you close the search you have to double click on it to open
New search has no option to search shared calendar appointments. I looked through all the advanced search options and there is no solution. I have customers that have access to many shared Dr. calendars and they need to be able to search those shared calendar appointments. in the previous search build this option worked well and very quickly. however now with this option gone staff is unable to properly manage dr appointments and clients.

My problem is the same. Please try to fix it. We love the old one version. Searching function is useful and accurate.

The same observation.
Right-click – „Find all relates messages from sender" is not working properly.
Searches for a number of records, but when I use the search frame and the "From" command, it finds a different number (real). I created a new index register about 5 times but did not help.
Also, „search - search tools - advanced search – contacts“ doesn't work properly in the same way.
In Outlook 2016 it worked fine for me. Issue occured just in 365 version. I did all the repairings (PST, profile, etc.) with MS support team but nothing has helped.
