    Appointment Reminder Keeps Repeating (2000 SP3)

    Every time I start Outook I get a reminder for a "Pastdue" appointment. This appointment was for a recurring appointment that was set up to recur on the last day of every month. To try to stop this notification, I went in and deleted the recurring appointment, shut down Outlook, and rebooted the system. I still get the reminder when I start Outlook. In the reminder box, if I click on the Open the appointment button, Outlook hangs. In addition, Outlook is nolonger hiliteing the dates on the calendar where there are appointments scheduled. Any suggestions on how to clean this up?

    See if the following helps:
    - Quit Outlook
    - Select Start | Run...
    - Type "C:Program FilesMicrosoft OfficeOfficeOutlook.exe" /cleanreminders and press OK.

    See How to use additional command-line switches that are not included in Outlook 2000 for details.

    Legare, this is a standalone machine, correct?

    If you were on Exchange Server, you could also add '/cleanfreebusy' to Hans command line, but I expect that doesn't apply to you.

    You might also benefit from running 'scanpst.exe' (a.k.a. the "Inbox Repair Tool') on your PST.

    Thanks! That does seem to have fixed the problem, and the /CheckClient seems to have fixed another.

    Yes, I am on a standalone system. Hans' suggestion looks like it did fix the problem. Thanks.
