Per the question, I want to be able to change how much time outlook gives me before a meeting.

I see the "default reminder time" but everything I see indicates that for when creating new appointments -- not when accepting. Testing this proves that that's the case.

I want the little pop-up to show 5 minutes prior regardless what the appointment creator set. How can I do this (if I even can)?


I am afraid there is no built-in option available in Outlook to accomplish this. By design the incoming appointments will override the default reminder time set via Options. As a workaround, you may have to manually change the reminder per event.
