    Microsoft Outlook question

    I have an extremely annoying problem going on right now - I'm not getting calander appointments to pop up with reminders at all. I was late to a meeting today. I have no idea why it wouldn't have popped up but they haven't been all day now. I've been looking in help for a while but I cannot find anything on the pop-up reminders.

    Probably co-workers trying to sabotage your productivity.

    Re: Microsoft Outlook question

    Are you working off an Exchage server, or just using Outlook standalone?

    One thing you might check is to pull up Task Manager, click the "Processes" tab, and check the process list to see if there is more than one Outlook running. There might be one that didn't shut down properly and is causing problems. I run into this problem frequently.

    Microsoft Outlook is one of the few programs where I usually just throw up my hands and reboot, which suprisingly solves alot of problems...

    Re: Microsoft Outlook question

    First thing I'd check is make sure notifications are turned on still. Go to the calendar and it should be somewhere in Tools -> Options I believe.

    Re: Microsoft Outlook question

    Go to your calender and click on the event you want reminded of. At the top you have a options tab(I am using 2007 by the way), you see a drop down box with a bell to the left of it. If it says "none" in the drop down box then it wasn't set to remind you. I would try that first.

    It will probably show "None" for any event that has already passed, even if it was set to remind.
