Why do Outlook reminders keep popping up when I sync my data?



I have recently installed Outlook 2010.  As I continue to explore the features available, one of the things I've tried is to set a reminder on my calendar.

From within Outlook 2010, I go to Calendar > New Appointment.  I then put in my subject, set a reminder time of 1 hour prior to the appointment time, I set the time and I click the save & close button.

When 1 hour prior to my appointment time arrives, the reminder pops up like it should.  I then try to have the reminder snooze for 15 minutes, and this is when the problem starts.

(Yes, I know most folks will stop reading here, but give me a chance... I explain what I have done to try to fix things below).

Whether I set the snooze for 15 minutes, 1 hour, etc. it doesn't matter... the reminder will pop up again in 5 minutes.

I've tried running Outlook with the /cleanreminders switch, but that doesn't help.

I've searched the Internet, and I can see others who have also had this problem, but nothing seems to jump out at me as another possible solution.

SPECIAL NOTE: One thing that I've noticed is that the reminder will pop up again whenever I click "Send/Receive" in the Quick Access Toolbar.  A check of my settings shows that I do have Outlook set to send/receive everything once every 5 minutes (this is in File > Options > Advanced > Send/Receive > Schedule an automatic send/receive every XX minutes).

Is there anything I can do on my end to fix this, while still keeping my global send/receive set to 5 minutes?

Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks in advance. =)

EDIT: I can verify that when I change the send/receive time to 7 minutes, the reminders pop up every 7 minutes instead.

Whenever I open a new email message the Control Toolbox pops up and I am in
design mode. How do I get the control tool box to stop poping up and how do
i get out of design mode? I turn it off on the control toolbar before I
close it, but it still keeps popping up and I am back in design mode.
Additionally, when I open Word, I am automaticly in design mode.

Thanks for any assistance. This is driving me nuts!

We recently upgraded to Windows 7/Office 2010 and now the Reminders window pops up everytime I accept a meeting invite in Outlook (there are overdue Tasks I need to keep track of and that I do not Snooze). How do I shut this feature off without Snoozing every overdue Task/Meeting Reminder?




I just moved from a machine with 03, to a machine with 07 outlook.

everything works fine and dandy, but my old reminders arent popping up when they come due! My new ones are, but not my old ones! Can someone help me so outlook recognizes them? They show up in To-Do bar, but not pop-up in a separate window...




A Microsoft Office Outlook box keeps popping up whenever I go to do
anything on my computer. AND it won't go away. It really never opens, it
just has lots of windows with errors on it that keep popping up. It
started when I went to send some Real Estate docs from one of my Real
Estate programs. I can't get rid of it and I can't send my documents with
my
Real Estate program. Had to print all the docs out and rescan them back
into the computer and then send them as an attachment. I have never opened
the Microsoft office outlook. I do use outlook express once in a while.

Last night I went to do some work with excel program and my excel program
would not open, the same Microsoft Office Outlook message kept popping up.
Computer wants me to find a disk to insert. It keeps asking to insert disk
however the programs are already installed.

What can I do? Is there a setting I need to change?

Please Help a frustrated lady!!




I have 5 email address in Outlook 2007 and they have been configured with the
same information for months. But, I opened Outlook today and I am getting a
pop-up for my password for every account. When I enter the password and
'save' it, the email does come, but then on the next 'send/receive' the box
keeps popping up asking me for my password again.??? Every email is fine in
webmail...just this problem with OUtlook 2007. I didn't change any
configurations...it suddenly happened when I opened my email today.

Any suggestions?

The "Enter password" window keeps popping up and continues throughout my use
of Outlook. Everything is entered in it but when I click "sign in" it keeps
reappearing. My mail still comes through okay but it is annoying to have
this window constantly popping up without reason. I delete it but it comes
back later. How can I prevent this?
