Outlook flag reminder disappear after 24 hours

Hi,

I have a problem with one of our users that is using the Outlook Flag reminder service.
When she flag's a mail and set a reminder, the reminder is gone after 24 hours.
She flag's only mails that are in her inbox, not subfolders or other personal folders.
The reminder service for calendar is working correctly.

I already create a new ost file, a new Outlook profile and the PC was just reinstalled with a new windows profile (server and local).

Thanks in advance...

It's possible that the syncing process is clearing the reminders.

Hi, scainfra.

Try launching Outlook from the command line (or Run box) with the /cleanreminders option.  This will force Outlook to rebuild all reminders.

Does she have a Blackberry or some other mobile device that might be clearing the reminders as the result of a sync?

Yes, she's having a Nokia e72 as a smartphone, synchronizing mail via 3G

I have about 50 users with a smartphone. None have problems.
I asked to user to test 2, 3 days and only connecting from the office, not from home.
Maybe it's the remote connection.
When that is still nok, I will turn off the mail sync from her phone and test some days...

Keep you informed.

The VPN connetion isn't the problem.
I now switched off the mobile synch, let's wait and see.

Problem is the mobile smartphone synch. Flag's are working when phone is not in synch mode.
I will try a reset of the phone and set it up again (next week).
Or do you have other ideas?

Sorry, I don't have any other ideas.  I don't know anything about Nokia phones, how they sync, etc.
