18 hour reminder for all day event in Outlook 2003

Someone I support noticed that even when the reminder for an all day event is unchecked, reminders are still sent 18 hours before.  If you change the time to 0 minutes and then uncheck the reminder, no reminders are sent.  Any information on this is appreciated.

    When you do have the reminder checked, what do you have it set to?

    Outlook defaults to 18 hours when the the "All day event" box is checked, but it can be changed to a lower time period than that.

    When you create an appointment and check all day event, the reminder changes to 18 hours (default).  At that point, if you uncheck it you would assume that no reminders would be sent.  But they are.  In order to have no reminders sent, you have to change the time to 0 minutes.  Then uncheck the reminder.

    Ahh, I see the problem now.  Do you know if you have the Office 2003 service pack installed?  This sounds like something I have come across while reading the list of fixes for the service pack.  Go to http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/officeupdate/default.aspx to check for updates you haven't installed (if any).

    Our system admins are now testing SP1.  Hopefully that will fix this.  Thanks for the info.
