Default Outlook Reminders

Please Login to Remove!

Good day,

My calendar was created in Outlook. I sync'ed my 8800 using the supplied software.

The problem is that I don't get the reminders on my BB that I get in Outlook.

Any ideas what I'm doing wrong?

Are the default calendar reminders turned on under Calenda / Options on your device?

I had the same problem but on a 7100 so I had a chance to read everything out there on the subject. Two things to look for, if you're using Office 2007 RIM had developed patch for the 8XXX series BB's. Another thing I found with the help of RIM is that if you are on BIS and have a Hotmail account or some of the other free e-mail services on you BIS account the service books for those accounts will mess up your pop up reminders.

Besides Hotmail I found that Fastmail was messing up my pop up reminders.
