Outlook 2010 snooze duration not reset for additional reminders

In previous versions the default snooze time was always 5 minutes on reminders. However, in 2010, the time I set for one reminder's snooze is carried over to subsequent reminders (e.g., 2 hours set for the first reminder is also set for the second reminder).

Is there a way to get all reminders to use a default of snooze for 5 minutes rather than keeping the value I chose for the previous reminder?

GREAT NEWS FOLKS!!!

 

(Sorry for the caps and !s but it really is great news.)

 

I just had this reply on a similar thread on the Technet forum:

 

 ...the Outlook Team has heard your feedback and will be reverting the behavior back to that of Outlook 2007 in Office 2010 Service Pack 1.  Once the SP 1 release date has been determined it will be announced on the Sustained Engineering blog, http://blogs.technet.com/b/office_sustained_engineering/archive/tags/office+2010+sp1/.

 

For those with technet access, see  Reminder snooze default behaviour changed in Outlook 2010.

The time you pick 'sticks' until a reminder goes off or you close outlook. It might also reset if you close the reminder window.  (I'm pretty sure it worked like this in outlook 2007 too.)
