Folder Permissions to support Reminders


A

alanb

Where do I change folder permissions in Microsoft Outlook 2007 to support
reminders?

I am getting the message that a reminder will not be set as this folder does
not support reminders. This is happening when I select a Contact and copy it
to my Calendar as an appointment. When I select the reminder period for the
Calendar item, the message appears when I try to save the Calendar item, "The
reminder for ________ will not appear because the item is in a folder that
does not support reminders. Is this OK?".

I am assuming the folder permissions have somehow gotten changed as I used
to be able to do this.

A similar message appears if I try to copy an Email from my InBox to my
Tasks folder, or to copy an email from my InBox to my Calendar.

Reminders only fire from default folders - it has nothing to do with
permissions. Go to folder list (ctrl+6) and see how many calendars are in
your profile. Make sure you are using the default one.

Under "My Calendars" I have the default Calendar as checked. It is the only
one checked. I also have an Archive Calendar but it is not checked when I am
trying set a reminder.

The regular/default Calendar folder which is the checked folder.

Note that this error message also occurs when emails are copied to Task as
well as emails copied Calendar, and Contacts copied to Calendar.
