Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

What indexing of what program is not working?

And, what is the full error message with 'omsaddin', please ?

Ask Your Own Computer Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
the search option shows over 65,000 items to be indexed and the number has been the same for two days. I tried to do the addin for windows mail search.
to your question:
Outlook 2016
this is not an error message; it appears in the list of disabled items
Tech Support Specialist: Russell H., Computer Systems Expert replied 1 year ago

Is 'omsaddin' perhaps an 'OMS Add-In' ?

why should it be disabled?
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
should I enable it?
Tech Support Specialist: Russell H., Computer Systems Expert replied 1 year ago

An add-in, is generally an element or small program, that is added to a browser program.

But you are not using a browser, rather an install of Outlook 2016, correct?

Tech Support Specialist: Russell H., Computer Systems Expert replied 1 year ago

OMS Add-On means, Outlook Mobile Service, and allows doing text messaging with MS Outlook.

Your problem has nothing to do with text messages. Or does it? let me know, I'm not sure, from here, yet.

it has nothing to do with the "index" function which is stuck on 65,457 items?
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
there is no problem with Text messages. should I have restarted the computer when I enabled the "addin for windows "search email..?
Tech Support Specialist: Russell H., Computer Systems Expert replied 1 year ago

You might try enabling OMS Add-in. If your Outlook 2016 has any text message items, the indexing of them may be disabled if OMS Add-in is disabled.

Yes, try a restart of the computer.

Then re-join this session here:

and let me know the result, please, with regard to your problem. At least let me know if it has been solved!

Thanks.

ok;
I have rebooted;
I have tried enabling Microsoft Outlook Mobile Services" which results in a message that it either decreases the computer usage or causes Outlook to crash and automatically disables it as well as Windows Search Email Indexer'
if I connect you do you think you can fix this so I can see how it is done?
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
anyone there?
Tech Support Specialist: Russell H., Computer Systems Expert replied 1 year ago

I am still here.

I don't know what to do to fix this problem; I have Opted Out, opening this case up to other Experts in this category.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
