Default meeting reminder settings in outlook

When I receive meeing reminders, they pop up as a bubble like the ones I get
when receiving new mail. However, have seen people get meeting reminders as
dialog boxes in the middle of the screen. How do I change so that I only get
the dialog box version of the meeting reminder.

Thanks

Different versions of Outlook? All version before Outlook 2002 use
individual reminder popups for each reminder. From Outlook 2002 on you get a
unified reminder window.

Default meeting reminder settings in outlook

Hey Ken,

Thanks for the response. I guess I didnt explain this very well. I'm using
Outlook 2003 as are others in my office. When I get meeting reminders, they
are coming up as popup bubbles in the lower right of the screen, but when
others in my office get meeting reminders they come in that unified window.
Is there a place to change it?

Thanks

All reminders in Outlook 2003 should be shown in the unified reminders
window. Do you mean when a meeting request comes in to the Inbox? That would
fire the desktop alert popup, as with all new mail that comes in to Inbox.
That setting is in Tools, Options, Preferences tab, E-mail Options, Advanced
E-mail Options, Desktop Alert Settings. There's nothing specific about
meeting requests there though.

That's the only setting I know of unless someone is running a custom addin
that does what you describe.
