Hi

I have imported a number of tasks into Outlook 2010 (exchange) from Excel 2010.

All the fields populate correctly and the reminder box is checked as it should be however the reminder pop-up does not activate at the deignated time.

I exported the tasks list back to excel and the reminder value is showing as true.

Strangely hwoever, the reminder does pop-up on my Blackberry.

Would appreciate some assistance with this.

Thank you.

Are reminders enabled in Outlook? Do they work for appointments or tasks you create in Outlook? Did you try restarting Outlook using the /cleanreminders switch? That rebuilds the reminders folder.

Thanks for your response. Yes, reminders are enabled and they do work for tasks created directly in Outlook. In fact, if I import a reminder and turn it off and back on again before the alarm time, it will work.

I hadn't tried the cleanreminders swich before but have now done so and it did not solve the problem.
