I was hoping others might confirm this, in Zimbra 5.0.8 NE (we are running on Mac OS X 10.4 Server):

I have my default reminders to be 30 minutes. It works fine as a default if: 1.) I right-click inside the calendar grid and select "New Appointment", or 2.) I create an event by dragging to draw a new event. Each of those techniques produces a new event that has the notifications set to my 30 minutes.

HOWEVER: If I go to the "New" menu in the toolbar and select "New Appointment" it sets the reminder to "Never".

Anybody else seeing this?

Thank you,
Chris @ DPM
