Turn off reminders for appointments that have already happened

Hi!

I would like to keep my reminders that occur before my appointments however I'd like Outlook to stop reminding me once the appointment has passed. I know I can dismiss these but it's inconvenient- I don't need a reminder once the appointment is in the past.

Thanks,

Juancito

Until you dismiss the reminder, its alive. Outlook isn't smart enough to know if you forgot the appointment or atended and no longer need the reminder.

If you dismiss reminders and they keep coming back, start outlook using the /cleanremindes switch.

ETA: if you have a lot of reminders to dismiss, you can turn off reminders in options and restart outlook then turn reminders back on. This dismisses all past due reminders.
