Public folder reminders

We have a SBS 2003 server. I have created a "task list" public folder for all users.

I would like the ability to set reminders within tasks and specify users or groups from within active directory to receive the reminder pop-ups.

I don't think Exchange natively supports public folder notification/reminders, any ideas if it's possible (scripts, addins, open-source sw...).

Thanks for your feedback.

It can't be done natively.

Thanks for the link. Is there anything freeware (opensource) around?

I haven't seen anything. That isn't to say that it doesn't exist - but the Exchange application community is pretty small.
