I use Outlook at work and my assistant puts things in calendar that are all day events.

My iPhone is alerting me to them at 6am on the day before the event, and other than turning it off in notifications I can't figure out how to change it.

In Outlook, the events are listed as "Reminder-None"

For instance, I am "on Call tommorrow". I got a notification of call this morning at 6AM. The event is listed for tommorrow, Wednesday, all day, with no reminder set.

Anyone know how to fix this? I would like to leave notifications on for daytime meetings.

Background: 3 calendars running in phone, Outlook, Gmail, and Yahoo. No trouble with the others. I do have iCal and Outlook on my Mac at home but don't open them much. I have not determined if setting one of these up may have started this problem, it has been going on a while.

Thanks

Lost more sleep, too

Yes, it is ridiculous that Outlook has a default of having an alert 18 hours before an all-day event. I just lost a couple hours of sleep yesterday morning because of this. I just put in about 8 feedbacks at:

http://office.microsoft.com/en-US/suggestions.aspx?origin=FX103894077&CTT=114

to request a change here. I'm asking M$ to (a) turn off default alerts on all-day events [they are very rarely needed or helpful]; and (b) change the time to 12 hours [noon would be fine. 6 a.m. loses people hours of sleep].
