Sorry I submitted early..
... What we created was a "next step" field and also a "next step" date.
What would be ubercool is if we could schedule to send a mail based on that field.
That would be a very cool feature if it did the same with tasks that are due as well.
We could even support such a feature in a modest bounty if it helps.
Thanks for this great tool.

Hmm .. sounds interesting but I think (IMHO) that this business case should not be a part of the core. However, if you get skilled help this feature should be easy to solve. Basically you could create an external script that queries the database through a periodically scheduled event (cron would do good, in linux) and emails when needed.

Tasks that are due .. you do know that email reminders already exist? See this forum post

I'd agree, this would be too specific feature to be in the core. It would be good as an external script or a plugin if it needs configuration.

If you need help, you can post in the forum and get some help in there. Or you can contact me and I'd be happy to work with you (my business does custom Redmine development).
