right click on an email, choose follow up, add reminder and set the date and time you wish to be reminded - no reminder ever appears. usually I can google these issues and find a solution, on this occasion im not finding anything helpful, any ideas?

Its not just my machine, I got a couple of other to try aswel (we are all running XP pro) and no reminder appears for them either, all hooked up to microsoft exchange server.

any advice or solutions would be great

This isn't a feature of Outlook 2003 that I use, but I just tried it and it works, although I suspect not the way you would like it to. I suspect your expectation is that it should popup a reminder similar to the calendar reminders, which is what I would like it to do if I were to use it.

What it does do is to highlight the email in the For Follow Up folder in the chosen colour, and it effectively means you have to keep checking the folder to see if anything has changed colour. Not vey useful at all.
