My Calendar meeting reminders don't appear when I use Microsoft Outlook 2000 in connected mode. When I work offline, I often see several reminders popping up as past-due. Why aren't reminders working while I'm connected?

The most likely reason is that your reminders folder has one or more corrupt reminder items. To resolve this problem, type

                              outlook /cleanreminders

at a DOS prompt or in the Run command's Open field.
