In Calendar/Tools/Options/Preferences I have set my default reminder time to 5 minutes, but when I generate a new calendar item the reminder time is set at 18 hours.

I don't know why and I don't know how to fix it.

Hi there Ange,

This is because you have All Day event ticked and is a 'feature' of Outlook.  If you untick All Day event it will go back to 5 mins before start.

Thanks Wadski, so is it possible to switch off the default All Day event to stop this happening? Just had a look in Outlook Calendar Options and can't find this as an option.

Ange,

I have had a look into this and on my copy of Outlook 2K3 which is on the latest patch I can do the following:

Open a calendar appointment. (All day event not ticked)
Tick All Day Event
Select View/Calendar
Select the appointment again from the start bar
Click the X in top right and not save changes.
Now open another new appointment (All Day event ticked)

I can then repeat the above and untick All Day Event to set it back to not ticked OR after opening 3 appointments and not saving them it goes back to unticked.

WEIRD!!!

And, there is no way to control the default reminder time when all-day event is checked?  This is just stupid.  I almost always want a 0 minute reminder on an all-day event.  Where does the 18 hours come from?  Is there any way to control that?  
Thank you.
