I am using a Blackberry and I recently sync'ed it up to outlook on my computer. After doing that I stated to get a reminder of a task that was from a couple of years ago and I couldn't delete it. Starting outlook with the "/cleanreminders" switch got rid of that problem but now the reminder service won't start. When I start Outlook I get the message "cannot start the reminder service. Unable to show reminders". Everything else seems to work fine. I went to Microsoft's web site and found a reference to the problem. They suggested downloading SP2 for Outlook. I did but it seems to have no effect. I use the reminder service A LOT so this is a pretty big issue for me. Nothing I do seems to make any difference.
