Description Joel Campbell 2007-11-01 15:08:59 UTC
Calendar reminders/alarms do not work if appointments are entered into the exchange based calendar. Reminders do work properly if the appointment is in a local calendar. The exchange based appointments do show the reminder icon and you can change reminder settings for those appointments but they still do not work  

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create new appointment in exchange based calendar
2.Set reminder/alarm
3.Wait for alarm

Actual Results:  
Nothing happens

Expected Results:  
I expect a reminder pop-up just like local calendar appointments.

Can you track this upstream? There are two possibly relevant upstream bugs I found with my quick searching:

http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=361760 with a hint that password has to be remembered for reminders to work

http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=436628 with some workarounds described for a different problem

The second bug report applies. If I uncheck my exchange based calendar and recheck it under Edit->Preferences->Calendar and Tasks->Alarms reminders work for that session. The workaround does not persist when Evolution is restarted.
