Fixing Outlook reminders

If your Outlook meeting and task reminders have stopped appearing, try these steps to fix them.

  • If Outlook is not running, start Outlook, and keep Outlook running to receive reminders.
  • When you create reminders, verify that they are saved in your primary Calendar or Task folder.
  • Exit Outlook, click Start, point to Run, type outlook /cleanreminders, and then click OK.
  • Exit Outlook, click Start, point to Run, type outlook /resetfolders, and click OK. Use this method if the /cleanreminders switch does not resolve the problem.
