Why mess around with Calendar?
New calendar can't send email reminders. I use Calendar to send myself email reminders of events. In the new Outlook version you took away the ability to click directly into the email reminder to change the date of the calendar event - which I complained about months ago with no response. Now you have messed it up even more, taking away the option to send myself email reminders of calendar events at all. A pop-up reminder on my lock screen is absolutely useless - I need to receive an email reminder as I have done for years. Why mess around with Calendar to remove functions, when you should be adding options not taking them away. Please put back the ability to send email reminders for calendar events - and to edit those calendar events from the email reminders (as used to be possible).
Hey! You can set email reminders on calendar events. Go to the calendar event and click on Remind Me. Then scroll to the bottom of the list where it says “Add email reminder”.
Hope this helps!

Also, please restore the other reminder options, such as 2 weeks, 3 days, and 2 days.

why did you take away the email reminder on the calendar???
PLEASE BRING BACK CALENDAR REMINDER EMAILS!
i print my workers a daily sheet and its trying to always print todays not tomorrows. also the beta is so much slower how can we get the old one back
If this feature is not restored I will likely switch to gmail. The absence of the email reminder function was deplored while the calendar was in beta. Please restore this functionality.
I also want calendar event reminder emails added back. Yesterday (2/3/2019) I added a calendar event only to find out that the calendar format had changed and that I could no longer send myself event reminder emails. Why would you remove this feature? I use those reminder emails A LOT!!!!!...I used them every single day!!! They forced me to acknowledge an event and take action if I needed to. A popup on my screen is NOT very helpful because sometimes I don't notice them and end up missing the notification. Or I dismiss the notification and forget that I need to take action on something later in the day. At least with an email, I can leave it "unread" which forces me to look at it later. PLEASE ADD THE CAPABILITY TO SEND EVENT NOTIFICATION EMAILS BACK TO OUTLOOK.LIVE.COM!!!!!
