I want a flagged email to appear not just on a day but at a specified time of day so i can respond.  How?  It defaults to 5pm. How do I control that time setting?

 I see this addressed in a lot of old postings. But I don't see any answers for my version. None of the other postings I researched provide a solution.

You can replace the default 5:00pm with your specific time in each reminder. The flag due time setting should be changable. I can do so with not problem on Outlook 2k, xp, 2k3.

However, I didn't see anywhere to change the default settings.

I spent some time on the same problem before (change the default setting) and had no luck. It's either no way to do so or it's hidden somewhere I don't know.

Thanks for the points.

I recall this 5:00pm is actually the "end time" of your Calendar options where you configure your work hours everyday.

It should be under Outlook menu -> Tools -> Options -> Preferences tab -> Calendar Options button.
