Reminders Not Working: Outlook 2010, 2013, 2016.


The most common reason for this problem could be the display reminders being turned off either in the interface of the outlook or a group policy setting if are involved in any. If the latter is true then it cannot be modified.

For 2010, 2013 and 2016 versions of the outlook can have this problem sorted in the following way,

1. On the File tab, click on: Options.

2. Select Advanced options in the Outlook Options.

3. In Reminders section, select Show reminders.

4. Click on OK.
