Windows 7: MS Outlook 2007 Calendar losing reminder settings

MS Outlook 2007 Calendar losing reminder settings

Hi All,

I use MS Office Outlook 2007 calendar to remind me about routine things like backups, data saves, periodic tax payments etc.

Recently I have noticed that I sometimes don't get reminded about these events. When I realise that this has happened, I open the item in Outlook and find that the "Reminder" field has changed from "0 minutes" (which would give me a reminder at the time the event was set for) to "none" (which gives me no reminder at all).

Can anyone suggest why this might be happening, and how to cure it?

Hello scandalxk.

Have you a System Restore Point that you can return to PRIOR to this glitch occurring?

Did you check in
Event viewer?

Type eventvwr in search and go to the windows log>application tab.
Look for errors that have red in the left hand column relating to the CURRENT Outlook Calendar problem.
When you find any make a screenshot and upload them to us.

What information appears in event logs (Event Viewer)?

JMH, thank you for replying.

I don't have a system restore point that I can use, and there are no errors shown against Outlook in Event Viewer. However, I followed your link for "cleanreminders" in Outlook 97, which then led me to the equivalent for Outlook 2007: here. I ran this and it seems to have worked.

In Outlook 2007 Calendar, the default reminder time is 15 minutes. That is, Outlook will remind you of each appointment 15 minutes in advance. In Tools\Options..., I've tried to set the default reminder time to a shorter interval. But no matter what I set it to--10 minutes, 12 minutes, 5...

Outlook 2007 Connector settings?
How can I change the amount of time it takes for the outlook connector to check the mail? It takes forever to check it on it's own. I found a registry tweak, but it says to enter a value of 10 to 60 minutes. I would like it to be around 2 to 5 minutes though. I'm guessing it's simple and I'm...
