Archived from groups: microsoft>public>outlook>calendaring (more info?)

I got this computer with Office 2007 and Vista in Jan 2007. I have had a
number of problems with the system, but he most frustrating is the Calandar
doesn't give me notifications of an appointment. It was like this when I got
it. One time outlook started in safe mode and the notifications started, but
then they went away some time later.

When ever I start Outlook, it tells me "there was problem reading some or
all of your reminders" also a box in the lower left hand corner of outlook
says "the operation failed. An object could not be found.

I tried deleting Outlook and reloading but this did not solve the problem.

I would appreciate any advice someone might have.

Bill - I believe it's in Tools>Options>Calendar Options>Planner Options and
you need to check "Show Popup Calendar Details"

It happened to me in Outlook 2003 and that I believe fixed it.

Cheers,

Nick

Thanks for the idea. However, it didn't work as the option menu was set
correctly.

Does anyone else have an idea about this?

I do not believe that the settings Nicholas described control what you're
seeing. I believe what he described controls the small popups you can see
when hovering over a calendar entry, not the reminder notifications. Have
you tried starting Outlook once with the /cleanreminders command switch?

Did you try a new mail profile?

I had the same problem. Did you update your Office 2010 Service Pack to
SP1. If so then this hotfix from Microsoft will address the issue as it
worked for me. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2584053
