When searching Groups in Outlook no results are returned

Last Updated: September 24, 2019


When searching Groups in Outlook, no results are returned.  The issue is currently seen in Current Channel and Insider Channels.  


The fix for this issue will be in Current Channel build 16.0.12104.10000 and higher.  This build should go out in late October 2019 timeframe.  See the Update History page to see what builds are currently available.

If you urgently need to work around the issue you can switch your machine to run Beta Channel which already has the fix.  Follow the instructions on this page to switch to Beta Channel, Installing Current Channel (Preview) builds.  

The configuration file should have the channel as BetaChannel.  Adjust the configuration file if your settings are different.
