I also have Outlook on my iPhone, and I get the alerts 15 minutes before meetings as well. They also pop up on my computer, but I mostly find the phone reminders helpful.

I’m not aware of the option to have an email sent to you and cannot find such a setting. Are you using the reminder pop-ups? Under Options, then advanced, you can have a Reminder window appear and also set whether that is always on top. I have both of these options checked Ten minutes before my appointment, the specific alarm sounds and the reminder window pops up in the upper left of my screen. True, if you aren’t at your computer when the alarm goes off, it’s possible to miss the alarm. The reminder window is in the alt tab list and JAWS window list, so you’ll notice it if you are switching between programs. If you are in Outlook when you walk away, I think you can hit insert T when you return to see if focus has gone to a Reminder, assuming that you have the always keep on top option set. Frankly, this is a key reason I have my mail and calendar linked to my phone. I love getting the reminders on my phone in case I’ve walked away from my laptop.

I’m sorry, my explanation is not accurate enough. I really mean meeting reminder events from the calendar. I used to be able to have an email sent 10 minutes before a meeting and that no longer happens. The was an Office365 update that Oracle sent out and I thought a setting might have changed but alas, I cannot find anything.
I’ve been trying to figure out how to get email reminders in Outlook and I cannot. I can get a reminder, if I remember to alt tab until I find it but I really need emails reminders, can anyone help?
