Outlook Meeting Request reminders not working

When others send me appointments via Microsoft Outlook, the appointment is saved in My Calendar, but never populates with a reminder, no matter how the appointment is sent to me.  If I go into the appointment and set the reminder, it works just fine.  I found the following KB article which was no help:

I've tested this on multiple computers and the results are the same, thus it is not a client issue but more likely an Exchange issue.

When you go to...

Tools / Options / Other tab / Advanced Options / Reminder Options

Is the box checked (or not) for "Display a reminder"?

Otherwise, you can..

1. From the help menu - select Detect and Repair (you may need the installation CD)
2. Use an Outlook command line switch when running the Outlook program:

Yeah I did the detect and repair and even the /cleanreminders switch but it didn't work (like I said I've tried this from multiple computers so it's likely not a client configuration issue).

I ended up just backing up the email, deleting the mailbox, then reimporting.
