    Missing Events (Outlook 2000)

    I have many "recurring events" set to occur at a certain time every Sunday. After a clean-install they stopped "reminding". I checked that the time zone is correct. What can I do to trigger the reminders again?

    Are you saying that the end date (of the range of recurrences) is still set for some time in the future?

    Re: Missing Events (Outlook 2000)

    They are not triggering at all, correct? When you reinstalled how did you reimport them, and to which Calendar Folder? Only items in default folders trigger reminders (unless you use Ken Slovak's Extended Reminder Utility).

    Yes, they are recurring events with no end.

    Re: Missing Events (Outlook 2000)

    When I do a clean-install, I replace mailbox.pst with my backed up version. Usually works fine. <img src=/S/scratch.gif border=0 alt=scratch width=25 height=29>

    And so it it should. I would go down Unkamunka's path and examine a sample of these Events and see if there is something unusual about them as they show in your calendar. I can't think of any native Outlook setting which would cause this problem.

    Re: Missing Events (Outlook 2000)

    You might try to start Outlook with the /CleanReminders switch (see <!mskb=197180>Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 197180<!/mskb>):
    <UL><LI>Quit Outlook if necessary.
    <LI>Click Start | Run...
    <LI>Type "C:Program FilesMicrosoft OfficeOfficeOutlook.exe" /CleanReminders
    (the path provided is the default path to Outlook.exe; if you installed it in a custom location, use that instead)[/list]This should clear and then regenerate all reminders.

    I tried the CleanReminders switch. Nothing happened <img src=/S/sigh.gif border=0 alt=sigh width=15 height=15>.

    That's a pity. It worked for me a couple of times when reminders didn't go off any more. There must be something strange with your recurring events...

    Re: Missing Events (Outlook 2000)

    Sorry to come back after all this time, but I've been away - and this is only "just a thought". You mention that this is after a clean install. Did you include Service Pack 3 as part of your clean install?
