We are planning a large migration of customers using Outlook 2007 in a Terminal Services 2003 environment.

They will be connecting to new Windows 2008 RDS servers that have Office/Outlook 2010 SP1 installed.

In our beta phase, we have noticed that some of the users are experiencing the "reminders not popping up" issue that has been reported quite frequently in this and other forums. In our case, the /cleanreminders switch appears to fix the issue. We have created a separate "Outlook with Cleanreminders" shortcut on the start menu (named as such) that will launch Outlook with the switch, as our customers are prevented from using "start/run".

Obviously, this is a manual process, and is usually only run when a customer reports the issue. What about those customers who don't know that they have an issue?

In order to stave off the reminders issue when moving the rest of our customers to Outlook 2010, we are considering modifying the default Outlook shortcut on all the production APP servers to include the /cleanreminders switch. We would leave this in place for 30-40days, until the vast majority of users have launched Outlook and silently (hopefully) fixed the reminders issue, if it existed.

My question is: Will it do any harm for our users to be repeatedly running Outlook.exe with the /cleanreminders switch in place for 30-40 days?

Thanks in advance for any responses!

Karl
