To get task reminders, place a checkmark where it says 'Reminder' and set what day\time to send you a reminder.

Hope this helps!

Do one of the following:

Set or clear a reminder for a specific task

Open the task you want to set or clear a reminder for.
Select or clear the Reminder check box. If you are setting a reminder, you can also enter a date and time.
If you set a reminder but don't set a reminder time, the default reminder time is used. To set the default reminder time, on the Tools menu, click Options. In the Reminder time box, select a time.
Set or clear reminders for all new tasks with due dates

On the Tools menu, click Options.
Click Task Options.
Select or clear the Set reminders on tasks with due dates check box.
 NOTE    If you assign a task with a reminder to someone else, Microsoft Outlook switches the reminder off so the person who accepts the task can set a reminder.

Below are few articles that provide various options and how to achieve them. Worth a read :)

Check the screenshot and the Option highlighted in Red "reminder" needs to be checked :)

I had/have checked the Reminder box, that would be obvious.  On the screenshot below, the red arrows show the settings I have questions about (what should they be) and believe me I have checked/set the Reminder box.  Also should it be set to "In Progress"?
