Are the items in the default folders outlook created? Reminders only fire
from those folders - there is a 3rd party app that you can use - look for
reminder manager at www.slovaktech.com

The items are in the calendar (I assume this is a default folder) and
the appointments were created directly in Outlook on the calendar. Is
this what you are asking? This is the only user having this problem,
so I am guessing he has changed something and does not know what or his
system has become corrupted. I am hoping someone may have had the
problem and has a solution.

Please post parts of the preceding thread in your posts. Your interface to
the newsgroups isn't doing that and it makes it hard to follow the thread.

Try starting Outlook using the /cleanreminders switch. If that doesn't work
try the /resetfolders and /cleanfreebusy switches.
