There is a problem with my Outlook 2010.

My reminders aren't popping up at the designated times.

I have checked the advanced settings to make sure reminders are turned on.

I have tested it on another computer and it works fine.

I have tried the Hotfix that Microsoft released on August 2011, didn't work.

I have used outlook /cleanreminders and outlook /resetfolders.

If I change the Outlook to Cache mode, the reminders start working but my Outlook slows down and my emails are delayed. When I go back to online mode, the reminders will continue to work until I close Outlook.

I don't know what I am missing. Any clue?

Cache mode shouldn't slow Outlook down and there should not be a (long) delay for email - a few seconds at most. I don't know if that is behind the reminder problem though...

Has cached mode always been slow?

Try a new profile and see if it works - keep your current profile and go back to it if reminders aren't fixed.

I think cached mode was running a bit slower because my user started trying to use it almost immediately after I had switched it over.

Anyway, I was able to get my issue resolved. I just had to remove the Office SP1 update. After that was gone, the reminders immediately started working again.

yeah, it will be slow until the data file is synced, but after that it should be ok. Interesting that sp1 affected reminders - I'm guessing it was a bad install.
