    In Outlook 2016 the default reminder time for all day events is still 18 hours, at least in my setup with a fresh install of 2016 on a clean system. I skipped over version 2013 so I can't say for certain, but it seems strange that MS would change it to 0.5 days (12 hours) in 2013 and then change back to 18 hours in 2016. I suppose the default value could be stored within the PST file and carried forward in this manner, meaning whatever version's value you start with is what you are stuck with on upgrade unless you use a fresh PST. It would be nice to get some clarity on this very first sentence of the article.

    Windows 10, Outllook 2010, how to change the "default" reminder for all day events.
    http://answers.microsoft.com/thread/9c292f4b-eed2-4564-b98a-c254e7b2fb69
    [i]This actually works byway of a prompt that can change the [b]dreaded midnight reminder[/b] to 5p the day before.[/i]...
    [i]For my needs I changed the Max/Min lines (38-39) to 5p and 8a[/i]
    38 reminderMaxHour = 17
    39 reminderMinHour = 8

    [i]and translated the French (lines 65-67) to a prompt message I could relate to[/i]
    65 rep = MsgBox("This APPT reminder is outside the 8a-5p comfortable range. Shall I change the reminder time to:" & vbCrLf & vbCrLf & _
    66 vbTab & reminderDateSuggestion & vbCrLf & _
    67 "INSTEAD OF " & vbCrLf & _

    Microsoft is so often about options. There's 2 or 3 ways to do almost anything. Mouse, keyboard, shortcuts. Options for this and that.
    But sometimes, and on this occasion, they just say, it's OUR WAY or NOTHING.

    Scary. There are [b]no positive comments[/b].
    And, even [u]more disturbing...[b]no replies[/b][/u]!

    I, for one, am looking for a [u]permanent fix [/u]so that my Outlook 2010 All Day Appointments' [b]default reminder is .5 day [/b] rather than 18 hours.
    There's nothing worse than be awoken ([u]at home[/u]) at [b]6 am for a [u]work[/u] reminder.[/b]
