    IMO, Nope
    The Outlook Reminders are possible only for the primary Calendar folders and not for the shared *calendar* folders

    Just in case if the end-users still want the Outlook-reminders to be generated shown-up to them...they should use the option "Copy to My Calendar" button to leave another copy @ his calendar folder

    Outlook Calendar and Task reminders do not appear as expected

    The Calendar or Task reminder is not in your primary folder. Reminders only trigger from within the primary Calendar or Task folders. Primary folders reside where you receive messages.
