Reminders from others



Before the most recent update, we use to be able to place an event on other
users calendar and chose to set a reminder for them or not before sending.
Currently everthing that is being sent gets a default reminder on the
receiving users calendar. Currently there are two of us using the calendar to
schedule six technicians on a daily bases and getting these reminders all the
time have become a pain. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. We
have unchecked the default reminders for both users and still the same......
receiver get a default reminder after accepting the event.


Office Outlook 2003 and yes it defaults to 15 minutes. Not real sure what
exchange means.

What type of email accounts do you use?

Exchange = Exchange server. There is a bug in Exchange where reminders are
added when none was set. I'm trying to figure out if this is your problem or
if its something else.

Dianne, I really appreciate your help on this and think that we may be very
close. The problem is that I told you we were working with 2007 exchange and
I was wrong. We are working with 2010 exchange. Any links, fixes or work
arounds for 2010? Thank you again.
