Hi agri_amit,

That actually happened to me before, I think if you restart outlook, it will work again. Please let us know if that works. Thanks.

In outlook, let's make sure the reminders haven't been turned off.
Tools, options
Find the other tab, Advanced Options, Reminder options, and make sure you have a checkmark to at least display the reminder. whether or not you want sound is up to you.

Check that, and let us know how you get on.

ya, these options are already selected.
by running the said command , it open a folder showing .ost file .I deleted that file and restarted outlook,but even though i am not getting reminder pop-up.

I am running outlook2003 with SP1 over Win XP professional.

Might be this information be relevent to suggest something .

Thanks,

Did you ever get reminders and now they have stopped? or has it never worked?
Do you get reminders for calendar meetings but just not for tasks---or no reminders ever?
Does not work for just this one user on this one machine? or can that user get them on a different machine (or a different user on this machine?)

So, as you, you get reminders on your desktop, but not your laptop. On your laptop, you do not get reminders no matter what the type of item is, calendar, task, etc. Has it ever worked on your laptop?

We need to check the delivery option for your email service on the laptop.

Tools, email accounts. View or change. Do you have multiple accounts listed there? or just one?  If you have more than one, which one is marked as the default location?
