Calendar & reminders/alarms

I just upgraded from a much older version. But now I’m no longer receiving the list of reminders (alarms already past) in em Client. How do I get that back? I need it badly - not just when the individual alarm goes off.

Also, when I start Em client, and sometimes even when I’m in it, there’s nothing on my calendar! Even when my 3 calendars are checked, nothing shows for the day… until I click to add a new calendar event, it seems.

What am I doing wrong, or is this a bug in the system?
