    Reminders - Calendar - Windows Live Mail

    Just upgraded to 14.0.8050.1202 and now have Windows Live Mail Calendar
    within the Windows Live Mail client .. (Whew! what a mouthful of a marketing
    name)..

    Now how can I set a reminder for an event or appointment? Was this feature
    intentionally left out?

    I'm not sure what value a calendar has without the ability to produce
    reminders..

    Hi, Bryan.

    When I Open the window for the Appointment and look at the boxes to the
    right of the Start time setting, I see 4 boxes, with icons, not labels, but
    if I hover my mouse over the icons I see some text. The text for the Bell
    says, "Set a reminder". Do you see something different?

    Just curious only. Isn't that a reminder ? The one I marked with a red arrow
    ?
    Please see screenshot.
