I am not sure I have the correct forum as I did not see a forum on Microsoft Office but

In Outlook.com 2016 web based email when I open CALENDAR and click on NEW and the details page comes up I get an option that says

Reminder                   and under it you choose a time

15 minutes                default

Under that I get an option that says

Add an email reminder

If I click on Add an email reminder I get

Second attachment       Attached File  Calendar 2.jpg   166.3KB   1 downloads


My question is I am getting these annoying reminders that pop up to the right every time I open my email with a current calendar item. I gather this comes from choosing the first reminder? I also get an email about the calendar item because I have chosen the second reminder “Add an email reminder”?

I don’t think I need the pop up reminder every time I open my email. So I would leave the first reminder blank?

Thank you,

I would believe so. Why not test it? Create a test calendar event for some short period of time later and try it without the first reminder set, but then set an email reminder and see what happens.
