TEB

Reminders alwas pop up for single events and all the recurring events which I
imported from my original version of Outlook 2003, but whenever I set up a
new recurring event the reminders never appear. Can anyone suggest a fix?

Do reminders work for any new appointments you create in Outlook? Do you
have reminders enabled? Look on the tools, options dialog.

All new (non-recurring) appoinments created in Outlook do pop-up. But if I
change them into recurring ones no reminders appear. I have tried the
suggestion of closing Outlook and then Start, Run Outlook /cleanreminders and
this launches Outlook but does not fix the problem. I am reluctant to use
Start, Run Outlook /resetfolders in case this wipes out everything I have
already stored as appointments, personal files Inbox, Sent Mail, etc.

that switch just resets the default folders, it wont remove anything.

press Ctrl+6 - how many sets of folders do you have?

When I press Ctrl+6 it just lists the standard set of folders (Personal
Folders and Archive Folders.)
I have tried starting Outlook with /resetfolders and this doesn't work.
More specifically, if I create an appointment a reminder pops up. If I then
change that appointment to a recurring one (of any type - daily, weekly,
monthly, every four weeks, etc.) it disappears from my reminders window.

It doesn't sound like you are using the wrong folder for the appointments.

When you make a change on a current appointment after the reminder fired and
save it, the time for the reminder is passed so it won't fire again. If you
dismiss the reminder, its turned off and you need to reset the reminder for
the recurrences.

Does it work correctly if you create the appointment as recurring from the
start?

My new recurring popup reminders are now working. I think it must have been
either the cleanreminders or the resetfolders launch which did it. It didn't
correct old ones, but new ones now seem to be OK.

Many thanks for your responsiveness.

I have the same problem described here except that running Outlook with the /cleanreminders and /resetfolders options does NOT fix it. It is just absolutely maddening. I create an appointment a couple of days from now and put in a "1 week" reminder. If I create the appointment as a recurring one, the reminder never pops up. If I switch a perfectly working non-recurring reminder to recurring, it stops working.

I think there is very definitely a bug in Outlook that Microsoft is very definitely not fixing.
