    I don't know if it can be done directly from WLM Calendar, but if you can link WLM Calendar to a Google account, you may be able to sync calendar events in WLM to your Google Calendar. In your Google calendar, you can instruct the service to email you (and sms text too if desired) upon the reminder for the event.

    For integration to Outlook, Google offer a free Calendar Sync Tool but I found it a little buggy and frail at times. I now use Sync2 which is not free, but seems much more reliable and it syncs my contacts to Google and from there to my phone too. Not sure if either of these will work for WLM Calendar though.

    George, Is this what you mean:

    When you set up a calender event in WLM or Hotmail (I believe because Hotmail will sync with WLM when you sign in) you will be notified by email at the time you specify in the reminder.

    I started to use Hotmail Calendar recently, as my Windows Phone syncs with it. I use the Calendar both for Events and To do's and my experience confirms Hotmail does send you a warning email in both cases.

    Hi TT & Ted,
    I have been using Google calendar to get email reminders of future events without too many problems. E.G. If I set a reminder, (email) it does not work if accessing Gmail directly. It does work if accessing my gmail in WLM. Gmail also has the option of a pop-up instead of email, I could not get it to work regardlessly of what I tried.
    In WLM calendar, I tried changing the notification address to my gmail address. Still not working.

    When this appears,

    I enter the Subject & Location information, plus a message in the main body. If I then click Close and Save, the event does not always show in the calendar agenda.
    If the Send in E-mail option is used, I get a reminder as soon as I sign in to WLM even if the event I want is for a week in advance.
