Outlook Reminders not popping up on some workstations

Greetings All,

We recently had to rebuild our Windows SBS 2000 Server after a RAID disk failure.  After rebuilding, reconfiguring and restoring all applications and data (including Exchange emails), we now have the odd situation where a handful of users dont have their reminders popping up on their Outlook 2003 client workstations.

Almost all other users are working fine now, apart from 4 or 5 who can enter appointments, tick the 'reminder' checkbox etc., but the reminder window does not open automatically.  When we manually open the reminder window (View | Reminder Window), it is blank, with all the options grayed out.

We have tried reinstalling Outlook 2003, adding the latest patches etc. but to no avail.

Thanks,
Devan

You probably will need to reset the reminders.  From the command line, navigate to where Outlook.exe is, and run

Outlook.exe /cleanreminders

If that doesn't work for you you might also need to add the /resetfolders switch

Jeff,

Thanks for your suggestion - it worked a charm (I had to use both switches).  Many thanks for your valuable assistance.

Cheers,
Devan
