    Are you using Windows7? It appears to be an issue with Windows7, not Outlook. By default, Windows7 combines the taskbar buttons. By doing so the Reminder gets embedded into the "grouping" behind the Outlook icon. This makes the reminder difficult to notice.

    If you change the "Taskbar buttons" setting under the "Taskbar and Start Menu Properties" to "Never combine," then the grouping separates and the reminder pops-up to front.

    If you do not want to let go Windows7 pretty taskbar then may be you like to try these, you have to write to author

    OR you can try ths beta tools,
