MS Outlook reminders not coming up

Having an issue with Outlook reminders not coming up. When I have the laptop outside of the office and I am connected through the VPN, I can get the reminders and I get reminders on the phone. However, when I am in the office, I do not get any reminders from Outlook. No one else in the office is having this issue.

I have tried using the MFCMAPI tool ( to delete the reminders folder and start Outlook with outlook /resetfolders. This works for about a day and then the issue comes back.

I have also ran outlook /cleanreminders and the Reminders are enabled through Tools > Options

Machine is running on Windows 7. Outlook 2007.

What is the permanent fix for this issue?

1. Firstly ensure that you have the latest Office updates installed on your machine
2. You can also try to recreate your mail profile to see if it resolves the issue
3. As a last resort you can try to re-install office

Hope this helps!!!
I might check that Cached Exchange Mode is not on.

I would also check that my outlook isnt setup to sync with any mobile device

Then I would test it again and see if eigther of these is the cause of the problem
Also may pay to check you have the latest SP installed

Tried all of the above and still could not get the reminders issue to resolve. In the end the solution was to upgrade to Office 2010.
