- How does SharePoint Reminder differ from the built in Alerts
The existing Alerts feature is only triggered when
something changes on the list - for example if a Task is assigned to
you to complete.
SharePoint Reminder will add the ability to send
out emails on certain date based events - for example it could
constantly monitor a Task list and send out a 'This Task is Due
Soon' email when the Due Date is less than 3 days away. It could
also send out another email if a task becomes overdue.
The key difference is
that its constantly checking the lists you specify, rather than only
being able to send out emails when a user does something. See
for some examples of how it could be used.

has been deleted when it checks it to see if any emails need
sending or the Web Part Directory is refreshed. If you have
set the Web Part to be
checked every 24 hours it could be a while before the web
