Turn off Office Reminders
Microsoft Office Reminders displays reminders for Outlook calendar events and tasks that you set a reminder for. It also displays reminders for e-mail messages and contacts that are flagged for follow up. Office Reminders also notifies you of Microsoft Office files, such as a Word document or an Excel sheet, that you flag for follow up.
Office Reminders displays scheduled reminders when your computer is running, even when you are not using Outlook or another Office application. If a reminder is scheduled to appear at a time when your computer is turned off, you will receive the reminder when you turn your computer back on.
When you turn off Office Reminders, you will not receive reminders from any of the Office applications.
On the Outlook menu, click Turn Off Office Reminders.
