    Hello Barry,

    You can disable calendar reminders in Outlook by doing the following;

    1.   Select Options from the Tools menu.  
    2.   In Outlook 2000, click to remove the check mark from the "Default reminder" box.  
    3.   In other Outlook versions, click the Reminders tab, then click in the box to the left of "Display the reminder" to remove the check mark.  
    4.   Click OK.  

    PS:You can disable the reminder for individual appointments by making sure the box to the left of Reminder in the Appointment window is unchecked.
