We have the following problem.

Open a sharepoint calendar in outlook
Post an item to sharepoint calendar via outlook
set a reminder for anything other than the default (i.e. default is 15 min for reminder, set the reminder to 1 day)
Save the calendar item
Open the Calendar item, the reminder is reset to the default time of 15 minutes
Change the reminder time back to 1 day and save again
Open the event again and the reminder is now 1 day

Why do we need to save the event twice for the reminder to take? How to we fix this?

thank you

OOTB options doesn't meets these requirments, you need to develope an custom app for this.

Not what I was hoping for, but seems to be the answer. Hope relationship between outlook, sharepoint and exchange works better in 2010.
