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.
