    I am using Windows Live Mail 2012 (downloaded in Windows Essentials) as my email client on Windows 8.1, as I greatly prefer it to the Mail app.

    In the Calendar section, the "Reminders" button is greyed out, and when I create a new event, the "reminder" drop box is also greyed out, so I can't set reminders at all.

    This wasn't the case when I started using WLM - maybe a Windows Update has screwed it? Can anyone help?



    Thanks

    Hello,

    To use reminders your calendar must be stored online.

    Microsoft disables the feature if your calendar is stored locally on your computer.

    As long as your WLM is also connected to a Microsoft hosted email account, such as a Hotmail or Outlook account, you should be able to use the reminder feature.
