Hi to all,

maybe it's not the right place for this but I don't know where to post it (Thunderbird ? lightning ? WM5 Outlook ?)

I would to have a full day (a all the day) appointement that notify me at 10:00am (in place of midnight) AND keep in mind the year : it's for birthdays of course (even if the person isn't in my contacts).

I use Thunderbird 2.0 + lightning 0.5 + Birdiesync + WM5 (SPV m650 = HTC P3300)

Thanks for any help... (even if it's a way to ask in google search :wink: )

PS : I've tried to enter these kind of appointment with lightning (start date = xx/xx/year) : it's OK for the year's counter but like the flag 'full day' is checked, alarm still not at 10:00... :(

I think it is possible to set an annual recurring event starting xx/xx/year. Then you can choose a custom alarm 10 hours after the beginning of the event (which I suppose is midnight). I made a test and it seems to work.

But the problem is that Pocket Outlook doesn't support alarm occuring after the appointment start. So it would very likely work under Lightning but not on the Pocket PC. :(

That's strange because I remember on my WM2003 I used this function without any problem... but, I didn't used Thunderbird/lightning/Birdiesync (2 or 3 years ago :roll: )

Maybe they're hidden registry key in Pocket Outlook for notify by default at 10:00... Thanks for your response :)
