Problem Description: 
a) cfexchangecalendar cannot set reminder to 'None'
When using cfexchangecalendar to create an event, if I do not pass in 'Reminder' as an argument, it automatically create the event with '15 minutes' reminder.
If I do specify a reminder argument, it has to be numeric. Even if I pass '0' it means the reminder is '0 minutes' i.e. there is a reminder which will appear right at when the event is about to start. It does not seem possible for me to set the reminder to be 'None' like I can using Outlook.

b) When retrieving an event with 'None' reminder, cfexchangecalendar will dump the result as having '15' minutes
If I create an event using Outlook and specify the event to have 'None' reminder, if I then use cfexchangecalendar to retrieve the event, it will display that the event has '15' under the 'Reminder' column of the query.

I am using exchange server.

Steps to Reproduce:
			username = "#User#" 
			password = "#Password#" 
			server = ""
			connection = "calendarConnection"> 

			<!--- form the event structure --->
			<cfset sEvent = structNew() />
			<cfset sEvent.Subject = 'TEST' />
			<cfset sEvent.StartTime = '2015-05-15 15:30:00' />
			<cfset sEvent.EndTime = '2015-05-15 16:30:00' />
			<cfset sEvent.Location = 'Test' />
			<cfset sEvent.Message = 'Test' />

				action = "create"
				event = "#sEvent#"
				connection = "calendarConnection">

		<cfexchangeconnection action="close" connection = "calendarConnection" />

Actual Result:

When dumping the result using cfexchangecalendar get action, the resulting inserted event has '15' as the reminder.

Expected Result:
