I have a small business that is trying to setup a shared calendar system using Outlook on Exchange. They want to setup a Shared Calendar for each Project that the team is working on and have pop-up reminders for due dates,milestones, etc. My research says Reminders only work on the primary user Outlook Calendar. Is this true?

Software/Hardware used:
Hosted Exchange 2007 on Intermedia.net, Outlook 2007 and Outlook 2010. Windows XP SP3 and Windows 7 desktops and laptops.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Yes and no. If they open the shared Calendar in their existing email profile they will not get the reminders, however if they create a separate profile for the shared mailbox and open it as the resource mailbox profile they will get the reminders. The caveat or “gotcha” is of course they can only open one of the profiles at a time.
