Tips & troubleshooting

I deleted a calendar entry but still received a reminder. Why?

Receiving event reminders via email is a feature within Posteo webmail. If you synchronise your Posteo calendar with your devices and delete or edit a calendar event there, the calendar reminder will not be updated. You will still receive an email reminder at the time that was originally entered. In order to adjust or delete also the reminder, edit or delete the event within Posteo webmail.

Can I receive reminders on my smartphone?

You can also receive reminders on your smartphone. To do so, create or edit the event with your external calendar program and activate the reminder there. The notification will not be displayed in Posteo webmail.
