Users can receive Instant Messenger pop-up reminders for upcoming events and tasks on their calendars. To enable these pop-up reminders, the following must occur:
The administrator must configure the Calendar server and the Instant Messaging server to allow pop-up notifications.
The end user must specify email reminders in the Options tab of either Calendar Express or Communications Express, which sets an alarm in the Event Notification System.
The end user must enable calendar reminders in Instant Messenger.
With pop-ups enabled, when an impending event or task nears, the alarm set in the Event Notification System causes Calendar Server to send an email notification and Instant Messaging to display a pop-up reminder.
