Mail on mac not searchable

My mac email system, with about 4 emails coming into it from google, has ceased being about to search for a particular person's email. It is very annoying as I depend a bit on this function.
A techie said that there must be some sort of bug in it, but. what to do now?

rebuild your spotlight index.
backup Mail data and rebuild mailboxes and indexes.
this all assumes you are using OS X Mail and not Outlook 2011 or Thunderbird.
