In a previous thread about past event reminders a registry setting was mentioned

Calendar reminder options missing

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\16.0\Outlook\Options\Reminders
DWORD:AutoDimissPastEvents
Value 0 = don't dismiss

Can anyone confirm if the name is correct or should it be AutoDismissPastEvents ?

    Hi @RobinC ,

    Based on my research, the correct is AutoDismissPastEvents.

    Create this key value in the registry and restart Outlook, click Send/Receive > Update Folder.

    2

    Reminders of past events pop up.
