    There must be some way to set the default reminder in Outlook Calendar for an All Day Event. The default is 18 hours. I can set the “Default” to anything I want under Tools/Options. But that only affects non-All Day Events. I would like to be able to set the default All Day Event reminder to 0 hours.

    Thanks for your help.

    Hi Don,

    I remember spending some time discussing this very same issue with a collegue a while ago and unable to change the 18hrs; however 2 points:

    1. If my working day starts at say 08:30 and I have an all day meeting, then I want to be reminded the day before so that I don't turn up late; 18 hrs is a reasonable reminder time to ensure I receive it during the previous working day. As much as maybe 12 or 14 hrs would be nice I don't know how to do that.

    2. If you want a zero reminder time then just clear the reminder tick box when you set up the calender item.
