Outlook Reminders from Hell
Posted on 2012-03-17
I have a client who is having an issue with Outlook reminders NEVER getting dismissed and going away.
We are running SBS-2003 with Exchange 2003 - latest revisions and all updates installed. The workstation used to running Outlook 2007 and was recently updated to Outlook 2010 (this update was an attempt to fix the problem) on Windows XP SP3.
Problem: When a reminder pops up the user clicks the "dismiss" button. However, the reminder continues to pop up - for days and days and days. *HOWEVER*- reminders DO WORK CORRCTLY on her Android phone and her iPad. This makes me think it's a Outlook/workstation issue rather than an Exchange issue.
As attempted fixes, I have: restarted Outlook with "/cleanreminders", rebuilt the Outlook profile, removed very old calendar items, made a few registry hacks I found via Google, etc. all to no avail. The ()^&( reminders just won't die!
Looking for any ideas, clever or otherwise!
