I have one user that is not getting any reminders in Outlook. OWA does pop up reminders. Outlook does not. This is on terminal server running on server 2008.
I have run /cleanreminders and /resetfolders
I have also downloaded the mapi tool and removed the reminders folder and then run /resetfolders and still nothing.

I did notice in the mapi tool this-some of the reminders show this error on one of their properties.
"MAPI_ENOT_ENOUGH_MEMORY.

Is this a recent upgrade to 2007?
Often what can happen is the MAPI could break.

Running FixMapi for the user should work

Otherwise
You could always rname his Terminal Server Profile to USERNAMEOLD
Recreate the Terminal Server Profile
and ReCreate the users Outlook Profile

hrm.

Possible the issue is with the number or reminders trying to display at once....
Or if there is one that has become corrupt

If you open Outlook Using Safe Mode
Start>Run>Outlook.exe /safe
Do they work


If you go into their Calendar
Change view to list view
Open the Field Chooser and add the Reminder Column to the list
The sort by Reminders

have a look.
See if you can delete any appointments that arent needed
Any appointments that have reminders that arent needed see if you can turn them off

Then try again

I called M$ today. THey stated that reminders can support up to 3000 items. This user only has 1700. I will post the M$ solution here once I get it.

Remove update KB2583910 and then startup Outlook. Reminders should work fine afterward.
