I have a user that keeps getting outlook reminders for deleted appointments. I've tried to use the cleanreminders switch but the reminders keep coming back. I'm running outlook 2007 on a terminal server with exchange 2003. What else can I do to fix this?

First Step i would suggest you to recreate the outlook profile.

Else you can try below steps

If Outlook is not running, start Outlook, and keep Outlook running to receive reminders.
When you create reminders, verify that they are saved in your primary Calendar or Task folder.
Exit Outlook, click Start, point to Run, type outlook /cleanreminders, and then click OK.
Exit Outlook, click Start, point to Run, type outlook /resetfolders, and click OK. Use this method if the /cleanreminders switch does not resolve the problem.
If the /resetfolders switch gives an error to the effect that your .pst file location for your Primary Folder is corrupted, run scanpst.exe file to fix the corrupted .pst file. The scanpst.exe file is located in the default installation folder for Microsoft Office (in case of Office 2007, the default location is C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office12" folder)
Once you have used the scanpst.exe file to fix the corrupted .pst file, click Start, point to Run, type outlook /resetfolders. Launch Outlook normally and it should stop popping up the dismissed and deleted reminders.
