Dual calenders and missing reminders...


H

Henrik

I suddently have two calendars in Outlook, a new, empty one called 'Calendar'
and the original one called 'Calender in Personal Folders'. The new one seem
to have become the predominant one -- it is the default one when I start
Outlook, for instance, it is coloured yellow whereas the other one is
coloured green, etc.

What is more, reminders in my 'old' calendar no longer pop up. When I enter
a new appointment with a reminder in the old calendar, I get the following
message: "The reminder for 'NEW APPOINTMENT' will not appear because the item
is not in your Calendar or Tasks folder. Is it OK? Yes/No".

I suspect this is caused by the installation and deinstallation of Window
Live Connector which I could never get to work properly.

I also have an additional, empty personal folder on the mail page. When I do
File / Data File Management, I only see the name of the original personal
folder. I also cannot close it by right-clicking.

How do I get back to only having my original folder / calendar, with
reminders working?

Thanks in advance

OK, I've managed to answer my own question -- it was the default email
location which had changed

Sounds like you have a new data file which has been set as your default.
You didn't specify what version of Outlook you're using but if it's
2007 go to Tools | Options | Mail Setup | Data Files. Select the older
PST file from the list and click the Set as Default button.

You'll probably have to restart Outlook for the change to take effect.
