I love creating events in my calendar from emails.

But I recently missed an event because, when created from an email, the event default alert is "None", and I did not change it manually.

Is it possible to change the default event alert for event created from the calendar to "10 minutes before the event"?

In your calendar application, under Calendar -> Preferences -> Alerts you should be able to set the default alerts for Events. Changing this should apply to events created from within mail too.

  • Thanks @moneyt. Unfortunately, it seems that Mail override this. If Mail creates an event for which the alert setting is "None", then on my side, I receive no alert even when all calendars alert preferences are set to "Events: 10 minutes before". – Martin Van der Linden Sep 8 '17 at 14:43
  • @MartinVanderLinden Hmmm, it works locally for me. The two things I would check are which account you have selected in the calendar preferences window, and also note that events on a particular day but with no time in the mail message will trigger an all day even, which has a different default reminder setting in that preferences window. – moneyt Sep 9 '17 at 2:19
