Outlook - Old reminders popping up....

I have several users running Outlook 2000 on an Exchange 2000 Server.

The users are receiving loads of old reminders popping up when they open Outlook in the morning. It doesnt happen everytime they open Outlook, usually first thing in the morning.

I am not sure why it is happening, it doesn't look like there are any mailbox corruptions. There are no errors in the exchange server.

Also, existing emails that had files attached to it as shortcut have lost the shortcut to the file. Instead a plain text file is attached. with name "ATTXXXXX.txt" XXXXXX been numbers.

These emails also seem to have changed from rich text format to HTML.

This is all very strange. On the weekend I'm planning on running: isinteg -s servername -fix -test alltests
and ESEUTIL.EXE and defraged the databases

Suggestions will be very welcome as finding an answer to this seems to be very difficult. I have checked similar posts but with no results.
