Duplicate Reminders in Outlook 2007


H

hurricane51

I upgraded from Office 2003 to Office 2007. Now whenever I add an
appointment with a reminder the reminder gets duplicated. Not the
appointment itself -- only the reminder. When the reminder pops up,
Outlook tells me there are 2 Reminders. If I delete one, the other one
also goes away.

This happens with appointments that existed prior to the upgrade and
new appointments as well. I've tried deinstalling and reinstalling
Outlook to no avail.

Anyone else experiencing this problem, or have a suggestion for a fix?
It'a a minor annoyance, but it's still an annoyance.

Have you tried starting Outlook one time with the /cleanreminders switch? Start->run->outlook.exe /cleanreminders

Will that wipe out all my existing reminders?

OK, I researched the /cleanreminders switch and it just regenerates
the reminders. I tried it and it worked!

Thanks much!

Yes, start a new thread with descriptions of YOUR environment, YOUR problem and what YOU have done to try to rectify it. Piggybacking on someone else's thread always results in multiple back and forths to get the basics started.
