I'm using the Outlook connector plugin to retrieve Hotmail emails to Outlook. Recently I started seeing the following issue.

  • Outlook starts
  • I see the connector signing in
  • As soon as it's signed in, the reminders box appears with a title claiming there are 3 reminders, but the reminders dialog box is empty (just white). At this point, Windows reports that the application has crashed. Here are the details of the crash:

I've tried starting Outlook with the /cleanreminders parameter, but I suspect that this isn't working because the reminders are in Hotmail, not Outlook itself.

Any hints on how to remove the reminders, or why they're causing Outlook to crash?

Go to hotmail(in browser) and try deleting any reminders if present.

If it does not work out, delete hotmail account from outlook, reinstall hotmail connector for outlook, check for reminders in hotmail through browser and reconfigure hotmail in outlook.

Reason behind crash seems there is something fishy with those reminders. So, get rid of them.

I should have said I have already tried those steps. There are no reminders in Hotmail calendar, and I have uninstalled and reinstalled the connector. Outlook did not crash when the connector was removed. – Bernhard Hofmann May 24 '12 at 10:42
