  1. Hi, ive been getting some error messages on one the laptops in work, it happens in outlook, when a repeat reminder comes up an error message appears, it says something like

    "cannot turn off the reminder. you may be reminded again. the function cannot be performed because the message has been changed."

    Ive tried doing the command outlook| cleanreminders but that has had no effect.

    For your info its oulook 2003 running on microsoft exhange server 2000 sp3.

    Also the outlook service stopped working the other day because the information store was full however this has since been repaired and everything else seems to be running properly.

    Has anyone seen this before?

    Doesnt matter, managed to fix it, I used the /cleanreminders and /resetfolders but instead of just using outlook /cleanreminders I put the whole location in "C:\Program Files\.......\outlook.exe" /resetfolders. Everything works fine and dandy now.
