This may sound like a silly problem, but the pocket pc is not notifyinf me of appointments etc anymore, when it used to.
All of the settings seem to indicate that everything should be working, and the remind me is set at a default 15 minutes before the appointment, with the sound on, the flashing screen selected and alarm sound chosen...but nothing is happening.
What have I done to make it not work anymore?

If the Microsoft Outlook Application is installed in the Computer, you can set reminders using that. If not, you may use another applications like Google Calendar or creating the .bat files. To create a reminder for an Appointment using Microsoft Outlook, please open the Outlook Application and press the Ctrl + Shift + A Keys. This will open an new appointment window. You can set the reminders there.
Hope this helps.

a pocket PC that still runs. wow. a blast from the past, 2000.
16 years it works ok , then today it fails?
you need to set time zones. and if you have DST , day light savings time in your unstated locations.
finding a manual on anything that old is problematic to you and most other helpers,
good luck with that.
The Menu: VIEW - Categories option at the bottom, has all categories checked off. However, the logic dictates that it will only show the categories checked off, and if any appointment (appointments being made in outlook are not categorized) with no category would not show in the pocket pc. The logic written into the software, is, if no categories are checked off, then it will show ALL appointments. It would be nice if there was an option in the category view menu to SHOW ALL, but there isn't. You just have to uncheck all the categories.
