Outlook Reminders Issue Following Migration from Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2010
Posted on 2011-10-13
I have a strange issue where by some but not all users have an issue with their reminders not working when they open outlook. If they manually create a new calendar entry with a 15min warning nothing pops up.
If the same user logs on to exchange 2010 outlook web app, as soon as they logon their outlook reminders page pops up as expected. So it works in outlook web app but not in outlook.
I have reinstalled outlook 2007. The user has logged onto different machines of users who have their reminders working but to no avail. I have used the command line switches when launching outlook reset folders and clean reminders. I have downloaded a tool to manually delete the reminders folder, then recreate using the outlook command line switch /resetfolders. I have created a new outlook profile for the user which does exactly the same thing. I have created a new network user account and can logon to that and get reminders. Since this is happening to quite a few but not all users I dont want to start deleting user accounts and re-creating them to fix this issue. I would rather find the work around to fix the issue.
