When you schedule a recurring appointment or alarm for February 29 in Microsoft Schedule+, you receive a reminder on February 29 every four years. However, if you synchronize your Handheld PC (H/PC) with your desktop computer, you receive a reminder on your H/PC every year. The reminder occurs on February 28 during years that are not leap years.


Microsoft is researching this problem and will post new information here in the Microsoft Knowledge Base as it becomes available.
