Snooze defaults to next reminder time and s/b time before/until the event

Not open for further replies.


The selection of a time segment when a reminder appears will always default to the last one used. If one event is set for a reminder for 15 mins. before, the reminder pops up at that time. if youanswer the question to be reminded again in n mins, it remembers that choice forever.

how can you change that behavior (to only use the choice for that event/reminder and not all futures)

Try performing outlook clean sniff. This switch clears the lockout on the computer it is used, enabling Outlook to process meeting items.

Click on Start > All Programs > Accessories > Run > copy and paste the following command line and press enter

I'm not seeing the 'forever' behavior. If i snooze for 15 minutes, 15 minutes will remain selected in the window *until* a reminder fires, then it resets the snooze time to 5 min. Items snoozed for 15 min will have 5 min as the new snooze time when the reminder comes up again.
