Error msg when entering appointments with a reminder

Not open for further replies.


Everytime I enter an appt with a reminder I recieve the following error msg:

"The reminder will not appear because the intem is not in your calendar or task folder"

So I can enter and see the appt in my calendar but the reminder does not ping me to give a 'heads-up"

How can I fix this?

Where is the calendar folder? How many calendar folders do you have?

Reminders only fire from your default folders- these are the folders outlook creates when you make a new profile. You'd fix it by moving the appointments to the default folder.
