A couple of PCs were upgraded and now access an Exchange 2003 server through Outlook 2002.  Ever since the upgrade some of the PCs are receiving the following error:

! There was a problem reading one or more of your reminders.  Some reminders may not appear.  Network problems are preventing connection to the microsoft exchange server computer.

I appreciate any help.

Try starting Outlook with a /Cleanreminders switch. Maybe this helps...

"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office10\Outlook.exe." /Cleanreminders

Hi Todd

Is this happening on all of the upgraded PC's or a just a few of the upgraded ones?  Which part was the upgrade: to Outlook 2002 or connection to the Exchange 2003?

I have since restarted the server and haven't had a complaint about the error messages.  I will have wait to see if the errors come back.  Thanks for posting and I will report back.
