Outlook 2007, dont'always see tasks & flagged e-mails

By sgauthier ·
Some days I will get notified of scheduled meetings and flagged e-mails and other days no reminders appear. When I don't receive any reminders, there is an error message where the tasks and flagged e-mails would reside: "The operation failed. An object could not be found." When I click on the tasks icon (under the calendar on the left), I get "folder could not be found"

Sounds as if something has been corrupted

by OH Smeg Moderator In reply to Outlook 2007, dont'always ...

You can try deleting the E-Mail Account and recreating it,

Or you can create a New User Profile and then a E-Mail account and see if that makes any difference or you can try uninstalling Office and then reinstalling it after a Reboot.

Also how big is the PST File on this system. If it's over 2 GIG you need to Archive most of the stored File and then try again with a much smaller File. Outlook was never designed to store huge amounts of Data.

no corruption - but upgraded to 2007 from 2003

by sgauthier In reply to Sounds as if something ha ...

E-mail was recently upgraded from Outlook 2003 to 2007 (along with most of the Office components).

Task & e-mail reminders were working after the upgrade and then disappeared. I then go them back for a day or two and then they disappeared again. Yesterday, I did not have reminders and today they DO work.

I checked the size of the PST file and it is over 2 GB. However, other colleagues have much larger PST files and they have no problems with reminders, so it appears to be local and our IT is clueless.

Exchange environment?

by seanferd In reply to Outlook 2007, dont'always ...

Domain environment with user profiles and data stored on a server? You may simply not be connected.

Otherwise, I would think your Outlook profile is corrupted, or that Outlook itself is corrupted.

There should be a detect and repair option, probably under Help.

diagnostics run

by sgauthier In reply to Exchange environment?

Ran diagnostics found under HELP > Office Diagnostics. There were 5 diagnostics that ran and 1 of them (setup diagnostics)idenitified a problem that took a corrective action.

Will have to wait and see if this permanently corrected the problem.

I hope this corrected the problem you have experienced.

It would then be nice if it stays fixed. Good luck!
