When you dismiss a meeting reminder, then the meeting is rescheduled to a date in the future, the reminder should be reset to appear again.
After a reminder for a meeting is dismissed, it WILL NOT appear again in the event that the meeting is rescheduled to a later date. When a meeting is rescheduled, Outlook should check for the dismissed reminder, and if the new meeting time is far enough in the future based upon the selected reminder time span, it should reset the reminder to occur again. I'm guessing there are technical reasons for not doing this, because it's something that should have been implemented years ago.

Agree. I get asked this question by our users again and again.
Agree 1000% why has this not been corrected in ALL this time, I can think of countless meetings with various people at different companies that have been screwed up by this terrible feature.
If a NEW meeting has a 30 min default reminder suggestion, the RESCHEDULED meeting should have the same exact functionality (30 min default suggestion).
Why in the world would users think of checking this for the reschedule when Outlook has it defaulted for a new setup? Everyone misses this and it wreaks a lot of havoc!
I do not believe you have to "dismiss" the meeting for this to happen. It happens if the reschedule is simply done past the start time of the original meeting.
