reminder features in outlook?

I remember a feature like this in MYM (managing your money) years ago. Is there a part of outlook that can do this?

MYM had a view in their calendar that you could see upcoming events and how many days away it was. Like a birthday, you could set it to remind you for 10 days prior so you know to mail a card. Or just 1 day if you don't care much for the person.

After the birthday, there would be no more reminders till next year.

Along the same lines, a client wants a reminder until they take care of the item, then delete it and the reminder will re-occur next year or quarter.  For now, they are manually changing the reminder to start next quarter when they take care of it for this quarter rather than being able to just delete the reminder for this quarter.

Is there a feature in Outlook that does these things?

When you create a calendar appointment you can choose "Recurrence" which would take care of future appointments.  You would also set the reminder time value "15 minutes to 2 weeks" and it will remind you untill it is dismissed.
