Setting Calendar Options
The Outlook Calendar comes with default settings for many aspects of its operation. As you
become familiar with the Calendar you may want to make changes to these settings to customize
the Calendar for the way you work. You access Calendar options by selecting Options from the
Tools menu and then, in the Options dialog box, clicking the Preferences tab. The Calendar section
of this tab is shown in Figure 11.27.
The one option shown here has to do with reminders for appointments. By default, Outlook
reminds you of appointments 15 minutes before the start time (you can change this for individual
appointments, of course). To change the default lead time, select it from the drop-down list. You
can select any time from 0 minutes to 2 weeks. If you do not want a default reminder for messages,
uncheck the Default Reminder option.
