I'm wondering whether it's possible out-of-the-box to set custom alarms for meetings/appointments that are imported via an external ical calendar file into Outlook? Use the built-in notification system, since it's that robust. I cant' seem to find any settings relating to external calendars.

Also, if this is possible, is it also possible to set the alarms for all events in that calandar to a custom date? I see that Outlook is scriptable via VB for rules, would they also work for calendars?
