When an Exchange Server 2007 user sends a meeting request to external recipients with the Reminder turned off, the default 15 minute Reminder pop-up window still appears

SYMPTOMS
Consider the following scenario:
  • You send a meeting request to external recipients in a Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 environment.
  • You have the Reminder feature turned off.
In this scenario, the external recipients receive the meeting request with the Reminder feature turned on. Therefore, the reminder unexpectedly notifies the recipients of the meeting at the default of 15 minutes before the meeting starts.
CAUSE
By default, outgoing meeting requests are converted to iCal items. During this conversion, Exchange Server 2007 incorrectly resets the default reminder, even if you have the Reminder feature turned off.
RESOLUTION
To resolve this problem, install the following update rollup:
