Outlook Flags - Default Remainder always "Saturday, January 01, 4501"?

    When I turn a custom flag on an item, e.g. email, specify some due date, the
    default remainder (by default unchecked) is set for "Saturday, January 01,
    4501". How can I change this strange date to be *automatically* something
    more convenient, e.g. the due date?

  3. This problem is directly related to the "Quick Click" setting. Access Quick Click with "Actions/Follow Up/Set Quick Click...".

    It will be set to "Completed". Change this setting to "Today" and the default reminder will become today's date.

    If you want "Completed" to be the default quick click behavior, either deal with this issue or click the item twice, once to flag for today and a second time to mark it complete. Notably, this method records the item completed with today's date referenced in the disabled reminder.

    I hope that Microsoft addresses this in MS Outlook 2010 by using "NULL" or yesterday's date for the reminder on a quick click setting of Completed.

  4. I can't repro this behavior on either Outlook 2007 SP2 or Outlook 2010. When
    the quick click is set to completed, no reminder date is set.

  5. Dianne,

    The issue is that when quick click is set for Completed, then when you set a
    flag the default date is "January 01, 4501" and can not be changed without
    removing the field content and then clicking the drop down calendar. If the
    quick click is set for flag today then the default date for a flaged item is
    today's date.

    I have not tried with 2010.

  6. Ok... I finally repro'd the date part but its easily changed here - the
    reminder command is live and I can tab into the date field and type a new
    date. I also noticed if a flag was set and cleared previously or you right
    click to choose the completed flag, the behavior is different.

    In outlook 2010, it uses today's reminder (1 hour from the end of the
    workday)
