Way to turn off calendar notifications for other mailbox in outlook 2010?

Got a user whos PA to Chief Exec so has both mailboxes set up in profile.

She wants to see just her notification not the CEs. So, for mail, I've disabled dekstop alerts for mail and added a rule to show a desktop alert when its her account only. Works well.

However, she still gets calendar reminders. I cant see how - is there any way to do the same for calendar reminders?

Calendar reminders work different from dekstop notifications on receiving mails. AFAIK you cannot suppress reminders from one account only (or at all). If a reminder is set up in the event, it is shown.
There probably is a VBA event for popping up a reminder, and that can check for the account it applies to.

If you really want to control calendar reminders the you can use the Reminder Manager add-in by Slovaktech.  Reminder Manager has been created by MVP Ken Slovak and takes care of a lot of limitations of the Reminders window in Outlook.

Raghavendra - I think this would turn off ALL reminders. User wants to still get their reminders just not the other users. To be honest, I dont think theres a way to do this.

That ^ solution is what we usually discourage, but here it is the solution indeed - the PA won't get any notifications by adding the account as the secondary mailbox in the current profile (instead of using separate two accounts as of now).

We cant add the account as an additional mailbox though.

We have to add as another mailbox because the user insists that SEND AS items go into the correct sent item box.
