When flagging messages for Follow Up with a Reminder, I do not get any reminder pop-up for it.
Is my reminder service broken?
Outlook supports reminders for flagged items in all folders, not just the Inbox folder.
In case this doesn’t work for you, it could indeed be that the minder service is broken and requires a reset.
Reminder service broken
In order to reset the Outlook reminder service, you’ll have to start Outlook with the cleanreminders startup switch;
- Start-> type;
This resets the current reminder status and forces Outlook to look for any item with a reminder that has not been dismissed yet.
Note: When executing this command, make sure you include the space between outlook.exe and /cleanreminders.
If you are looking additional ways to manage your flagged items and reminders, there are various reminder management add-ins available.
