One of our Active Directory users does not get calendar or task reminders in Outlook. We are using Exchange 2003 and Outlook 2007. The user profile is on terminal servers.  

In Outlook - all checkboxes in Tools > Options are checked properly for reminders to pup up. We deleted the profile in AD and recreated it and had the same issue. The reminders worked fine before and suddenly they stopped working - we cannot relate this to something that happened with the network or for that particularly user.

Your advice would be really appreciated.
Thank you.

Try closing Outlook and then relaunching from a Run command like so:

outlook /cleanreminders

I would then try closing Outlook, then try with this:

outlook /cleanreminders /cleanfreebusy

Other troubleshooting approaches include recreating the Outlook profile on the Term Serv user profile, and then the invariable new Windows profile on the Term Serv itself.

A new Windows profile (which is usually exercised as a last resort) should've resolved this... hmm. Could you try starting Outlook up in Safe Mode, then from another computer, send an Appointment to this user for 5 minutes from present time to see if the Reminder kicks up as it should?

We're having a very similar issue on one of our customers' terminal server.

We've tried running outlook with the /cleanreminders and the /resetfolders switch (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/286166)  No luck.

We've also tried starting outlook in safe mode.   The reminders window is empty when you manually open it.

However, when the user logs into OWA, the reminders pop-up displays as expected.

Have you had any luck with this yet?

Yes - here is the resolution:

Outlook - User that is not getting the reminders for Calendar appointments and Tasks.
Uninstall update from Microsoft:
Update for Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 (KB2583910)  Remove it and your reminders will work again.

Regards.
