Windows 7: Question on Windows 7 / Windows Live Mail

Question on Windows 7 / Windows Live Mail

Hi -

I recently bought a new Windows 7 computer and have Windows Live Mail 2011 installed on it. There are 5 tabs at the bottom, one of which is calendar. This in turn has a feature that I have often hoped for, called reminder, which sends an e-mail to remind of an appointment.

Yet on my computer, the reminder icon (an icon with a bell in the top row) is grayed out and I cannot seem to get it to work or to activate.

How would I go about activating this feature so that I can start using it?

Thank you for your assistance.
