Reminder service here works for a few weeks then quits for several months. Because of the years of chronic reminder problems, I moved some of my groups to groups.io about 1/2 year ago. I've been pleased with the calendar and email service there. There's even a migration process there that helps copy the users and email base over.
Reminders for some of my groups have not been sent for a couple months, although surprisingly one of my groups sent a reminder today. This problem has been recurring over the last ~5 years. It takes forever to be fixed, and then it dies again whenever Yahoo adds "improvements".

Let's find a postal address for Verizon Yahoo board of directors and start writing regular letters that will be hard to ignore.
Calendar has been erratic for 6 years and mailer demon has been rejecting my group members' emails all week. Time to write a letter to the Board of Directors or Verizon Yahoo.
Reminders were on and off all year until March when these quit working in all my yahoogroups. This problem has been recurring for years. Still having to edit the group calendars events through calendar.yahoo.com
oops, accidentally flagged the idea. How do I unflag it?
HIt that error msg again today when I went to check why no reminder was sent out today.
Same problem from 2012 and no it wasn't really completely fixed:
188 Group Calendar Access Problem Resolved
Sep 20, 2012
Few of the group members might have faced problems, in last few hours, while accessing their Groups Calendar from Groups site and would have run to following error message
"Your access to this calendar is being processed. Please check back later."
We are really sorry for the inconvenience caused to you due this. Good news is that the issue has been fixed.
Meanwhile, in future for any reason you if you run into any issue (hopefully never) while accessing your Groups Calendar from your Group site, you can try accessing it from calendar.yahoo.com and there is a good chance that its working fine there.
Thanks again for your patience while our team worked through this issue.
Y! Groups and Calendar Team
Calendar reminder system has seen so many breakdowns over the past decade as a result of updates. Failures occur and don't get fixed for weeks, sometimes months. Can you just not fix something that ain't broke?
