I've been battling for years with Outlook 2010 when it comes to reminders, whenever I set a reminder it seems like I get reminded at odd hours of the morning or night and get woken up. I know you can set not to be reminded or you can set anything from hours to half a days, two weeks. But this morning I got woke up three different times from 3 AM to 6 AM by a loud Outlook reminder. So now it's time to just stop ignoring it and see if there's a way that I can fix it. I'm hoping someone here can tell me if it's possible.

Now I know I can set the volumes by just adjusting my computer volume, however, it is Big Brother season And I watch the live feeds and in order to hear everything properly, you got a set your volume at least 1/3 of the way up. Now to most of you what I just said won't make a bit of sense unless you're a big brother fan

For example, if I set a reminder and if I wanted to be reminded in a week a day, is it possible to set a specific time, for example, set a reminder for 9:30 in the morning.

Outlook has default reminder times - set in File, Options. One for Appointments (minutes before), one for tasks (specific time of day). All day events have an 18 hour by default, which could account for the 6 am reminders.

You can also select a specific reminder time for tasks and appointments when you create them

Thanks, that is what I would like to do. I often set a reminder on my calendar and I would like them to remind me for example, at 10:00 AM. I have yet to figure out how to get close to that with the time options now default in Outlook 2010

Calendar reminders are 'minutes before' the meeting start. Task reminders are at a specific time unless you change it - flagged messages will use the task settings as long as the flag is for tomorrow or later - today flags fire at 1 hour before the end of the work day.

To set all appointment reminders to 10 am would require a macro to do the calculationg.

Well, that sounds out of my league, I didn't even know Outlook uses macros, I guess I will have to just deal with it as it is.
Thanks for the help

I was thinking about the Macro answer you gave me and I did a little bit of research about macros in Outlook 2010 and I ended up right back here on your forum.

To help me understand the calendar reminders in Outlook 2010 can you please tell me this, If I set a reminder for next Monday, does Outlook consider Sunday night at 12:01AM as "Monday?
