Task List - Email Reminders
Similar to OOTB Alerts; but emails are triggered by task due date.
Allows task list owners to automatically send email reminders when tasks are due.

One email is sent per list, per assignee each day, if tasks meet this criteria:
1) task status is open
2) it is assigned and assignee has an email address

Emails are sent out daily and only when assignee has tasks in the list that are:
1) due today
2) due in two days
3) two days past due

In Progress... Version 2
1) Calendar Email Reminders... based on event date
2) Remind Me allowing contributors to setup email reminders for themselves on task lists and calendars
3) Send response emails after someone adds a list/library item
4) Send an email to members of a list or assignees
