I use Outlook to maintain my calendar, but also, in a second calendar, to maintain what I have done (the comparison can be quite useful).

The items in this second calendar obviously shouldn't have a reminder. Certain types of items (non-appointments) in my regular calendar shouldn't have a reminder, either.

Having to switch off the reminder for each message of these types is very annoying. Of course, I can set the default reminder to None for everything, but then it will be annoying to miss appointments because I forgot to set their reminders.

So I'd like to have different reminder defaults for different types of calendar entry.

How do I achieve this in Outlook 2007?

I found a lot of similar requests, and a MS MVP for Outlook indicated you need a third party app for this. The recommendation was:

Reminder Manager

It's NOT free (price $30.00) but it can do a lot and is forward compatible with Outlook 2010 (32bit).

I'll have a look, thanks! – reinierpost Sep 9 '10 at 8:21
I know it can be done with scripting but I don't really want to go there. – reinierpost Sep 9 '10 at 8:22
I don't need a Reminder Manager. I just want this particular feature. – reinierpost Sep 9 '10 at 10:44
It's not supported without either a 3rd party app or a script. – JNK Sep 9 '10 at 10:46
