200 week old reminders in Outlook 2007

Hi,

I've Outlook 2007 on my XP machine (Pro SP3). I sync my Ipaq and Blackberry
with my machine.

Everytime I launch Outlook I get over a hundred reminders appearing some of
which go back over 200 weeks.

I always select dismiss all but this makes no difference I still get all the
reminders (which increase each day). Some of the reminders appear 4 times in
the list of reminders (others 2 or 3 times). I've looked in my calender and
none of the appointments, for which I get reminders for, appear more than
once.

Any suggestions how I overcome this?

Thanks

Tom

Hi,

No I'm not syncing with exchange - I'm not getting any problems with my ipaq
or blackberry, they are only showing reminders that are due to appear not old
or duplicate ones.

Are the appointments getting duplicated when you sync with the two devices?
Are you using Desktop manager to sync to the BB?

Try dismissing the reminders then set the syncs to only sync from outlook to
the devices for a couple of day - does the problem recur? If not, do a 2
way sync with one device for a couple of days - does the problem return?
