Outlook 2007 Reminders not popping up

Posted on 2011-09-18
Last Modified: 2012-05-12
All of a sudden the reminders popup stopped appearing in one user's Outlook 2007 workstation.  If I click "View, Reminders" the folder is empty.  This is an Exchange 2003 installation.  If on the other hand I log in to OWA for this user the reminders pop up normally.

I've tried various fixes like running "outlook /cleanreminders" to no avail.

Anyone have a possible solution?

Try to run outlook.exe /cleanreminders on the computer.

I did that to no avail.  I also ran outlook.exe /resetfolders with same result.

Have you tried to remove the OST file ?

Yes, tried that as well.  I re-installed a clean copy of Outlook and the problem disappeared for 3 days and then returned.  I think the solution may be to create a new Exchange mailbox for this user.

Try un-installing the Update for Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 (KB2583910) on the workstation, if it is installed.
