Run this command, it should work:

outlook.exe /cleanreminders

It will reset the corrupted outlook reminder option

OL2000: Calendar or Task Reminders Do Not Appear @
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;Q321179

Outlook is not running. Unlike Microsoft Schedule+, which has a separate file to handle reminders, the main Outlook program controls the reminders. If Outlook is not running, reminders do not appear.


The Calendar or Task reminder is not in your primary folder. Reminders only trigger from within the primary Calendar or Task folders. Primary folders reside where you receive messages. When you set up an e-mail service, you designate either your mailbox Inbox or your personal folders (.pst) file Inbox as the mail delivery point.

For example, if you receive messages in your personal folders (.pst) file Inbox and you create an appointment reminder in your mailbox Calendar, the reminder does not appear. If you create the same reminder in your Personal Folders Calendar, the reminder does appear at the appropriate time.


The Delivery option of your e-mail service is set to "None" (without quotation marks). You must specify a default delivery location for reminders to be processed.


The Reminders folder is damaged or contains corrupt reminder items.

Hi All,

I have the same problems as mel7 71 but with Office XP. The wierd thing is that it is only with two clients out of 10. All the other clients reminders works. Therefore I am pretty sure that it is NOT a server issue.

I have tried all the solutions suggested in Q321179 but none of them helped.

Any ideas?

Kind regards

Mikkel
