Outlook will show reminders only from your own mailbox or PST

You can use 3d party to show them from other mailboxes

Alternatively, if your users are using Outlook 2010, you can get them to add the shared mailbox in Outlook as a primary mailbox (Outlook 2010 will allow you to do this) and then they'll receive the reminders.

Go to Account Settings, and Add new Account. Both will then be displayed.

Jared is onto it here

If your using OUtlook 2010 you can now add up to 3 Multiple Fully Functional Exchange Accoutnts.

Adding the shared account will allow the reminders to show.

However, OUtlook wont let you add one of these while its open so you will need to do this with outlook closed

Via the control panel>Mail>Accounts

Hi

I am looking for the exact opposite. How can I disable reminders in a shared calendar?
