Prevent Outlook Contact Birthday records from generating a reminder
Posted on 2004-10-18
I have written a VB program to add Outlook contact records from a third party source. It works great except for one detail.
The contacts have birthday fields filled in. Since I have close to 500 contacts, I now get reminders every day that it's somebody's birthday, and I really don't want to know this.
I don't want to disable all reminders, for I use them for other tasks, appointments, etc. I would like to only disable the reminders for the contact records, ideally when I am adding them.
I found the .ReminderSet parameter, but it does not appear to apply to contactitems. Is there a way for me to specify at the creation time of the contact NOT to create the reminder?
