Syncing to Outlook

I have been using Quicken for about three weeks now. I originally was able to sync my reminders to Outlook, but they have stopped. In the edit bill reminder pop-up, the sync to outlook is grayed out and has Outlook not installed in parenthesis. I am running the 32 bit version of Outlook and it is my default mail app. I have also tried to reset my cloud data without any success of fixing the problem.

    Hello @josh.stitely

    Thank you for taking the time to share the details of this issue with us, although I apologize that you have not yet received a response.

    May I ask, is Outlook set as the default mail client?  If you aren't sure, this information may be found by opening the Windows Settings menu > Apps > Default Apps.

    If Outlook is not set as the default, please set it as the default and let us know if you are now able to sync Quicken reminders with Outlook.

    Thank you,

    Yes, Outlook is my default mail client. I also have confirmed I am running the 32 bit version of Outlook and I have tried to reset my cloud data. It worked for a few weeks, but recently quit.

    My issue may be similar. When I start Quicken and it runs the One-Step Update I get an error message that says, "Either there is no default mail client or the current mail client cannot fulfill the messaging request. Please run Microsoft Outlook and set it as the default mail client." I, too, have Outlook as my default mail client. And after Quicken runs the Update, it says it has synced up to Outlook for reminders, but every time I start Quicken I get that message. Is there a way to correct so that it knows Outlook is the default, or at least stop the error message I get every time?
