Reminders for archives and additional pst-files

I’m storing a couple of my Outlook folders outside of my default mailbox (inside a separate pst-file). When I flag messages in this folder and add a reminder I get the following error;

“The reminder for “<subject>” will not appear because the item is in a folder that doesn’t support reminders. Is this OK?”

How can I add reminder support to this folder?

Outlook 2007 and Outlook 2010 do support reminders across folders in additional pst-files but by default this option is disabled.

The reminder for <subject> will not appear because the item is in a folder that doesn’t support reminders. Is this OK?

To enable reminder support for these pst-files;

  1. Right click on the top of the pst-file and choose Properties.
    Outlook Data File context menu
  2. In the Properties dialog enable the option;
    Display reminders and tasks from this folder in the To-Do Bar
  3. You’ll be prompted to restart Outlook. Once restarted, the reminders should work.

If reminders still do not pop-up for you then or when you want to add Reminder support across folders for Outlook 2003 or previous see; Follow Up Flags and reminders
