After migration from Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2010 we have the following problem with meeting requests send by users:
-user A sends a meeting request with reminder set to none
-user B accept the meeting request and now the reminder is set to 15 minutes
When i disable the Feature Calendar Settings -> Automate Processing -> Enable Calender Attendant -> "Mark new meeting requests als Tentative" on the mailbox from user B, the reminder is set to none.
This can not be the solution, because the "Mark new meeting requests als Tentative" is necessary for us.
As client we tested Outlook 2003 and 2007, problem ist the same in both versions.
Any other ideas to solve this problem?
Thank you for your message here
Based on my test, in Outlook 2007, go to Tools->options->Preferences tab, in Calendar box, you can customize the Default reminder for yourself. (by default it is 15 minutes)
Actually, it is at the Sender side that the reminder has been set to none, but it does not affect the recipient side.
As to the "Mark new meeting requests as Tentative" option, if you select this check box, incoming meeting requests are marked as "Tentative" on the calendar. If you don't select this check box, pending requests are marked as "Free". This setting is enabled by default

Hi Marco, is the above mentioned problem still an bug that needs to be fixed? I utilize outlook 2007 and when the receiver gets the request, it is set at a 15 minute default, even though i originally sent the meeting with an 8 hr reminder.
Has this been resolved?
I appreciate your help!
Any word on the reminder problem? We are running Outlook 2007 on Exchange 2010, and we have the same issue. User B receives the appointment and automatically has a reminder for it set to 15 min regardless of user B's or user A's Outlook setting for reminder default. The big problem is that this reminder is also set for events, resulting in alerts being sent to user B's blackberry between 11:45pm and midnight. These reminders have to be manually removed by user B. I'm surprised I can't find much on the web or in forums for this particular problem.
I'm having this problem on an Exchange Server 2013 CU9. Added the StoreDriver.config and restarted the Transport services. Until here the problem is not solved. When i'm trying to use the Set-CalendarProcessing cmdlet I get the following errors:
- AddNewRequestsTentatively can only be enabled on resource mailboxes.
- ProcessExternalMeetingMessages can only be enabled on resource mailboxes.
Does anybody have an idea? Also Microsoft says in its article, that it is not applying to Exchange Server 2013?
I have no idea what to do next? Can't find anything on the internet.
This seems to be the solution. I have not yet tested it.
Thank you for the question. This you need to do on both ends. You set this none in outlook. you also need to set this in exchange server using the below command.
Set-CalendarNotification username -MeetingReminderNotification $false
you can say this is a sort of bug but you need to perform this. Changes set in outlook is unable to override the settings in exchange servers.
