Are delegates of calendars, with full access permissions supposed to be able to get reminders that the Owners of the calendar gets?
I have a user who has full access permission to her boss' calendar. He receives the reminders pop-ups but she does not. She gets them for her own calendar but not for his.

Is this by design or is there a rule or setting that needs to be set on either his or her mailbox?

Only the owner gets the reminders. Not the delegate.
However if you add the mailbox as an additional ACCOUNT (So go through the new account wizard) you should get the reminders.

Hi joshsarmymom,

You have not mentioned the version for Outlook in your query. Still considering that if the users have Outlook 2010 as their email client, you can go to the File tab > 'Account Settings' drop down menu > 'Delegate Access'.  In that menu you can customize who gets meeting notifications. It says "Deliver meeting requests addressed to me and responses to meeting requests where I am the organizer to:' and you can choose one of the three options:

1 - My delegates only, but send a copy of meeting requests and responses to me

2 - My delegate only

3 - My delegates and me

Also, if you click on the 'Permissions...' button you can also check 'Delegate receives copies of meeting-related messages sent to me' for any delegate listed.

Please check & let me if you are experiencing any difficulties with the above steps.


Regards,
Atul

Confirmed user has her boss' entire mailbox added to hers.
He has "delegate receives copies of meeting-related messages sent to me" set up for her.
She still is not receiving the reminders.

As you are using Outlook 2010, remove the additional mailbox and add it as an additional ACCOUNT. That will give the user full access to the account, which should include reminders.
