    I would like to find a feature-rich to-do and reminder Windows software which has the following features:
    * a way to display all forthcoming tasks at specific period, preferably the ability to sort based on urgency, category etc.
    * a task which I can set multiple reminders (e.g. remind me before 1 month at 6:00pm, before 10 days at 12:00pm, on that day at 1:15pm etc.)
    * a re-occurring task/event with advanced pattern (e.g. at different specific dates, or every 3rd, 11th, 25th day of Jan, Mar, May), preferably set when the pattern starts/expires

    I have tried several software but they lack some of the features I want. Does anyone know any software which has those features? Shareware is fine.

    Thank you very much. :)

    Do you use it personally? Is it good?

    Does it have the features that I want?
    Could I store the tasks/data locally, or must it store in their server?

    Thank you.

    Yes, yes, I believe so, and locally.

    You're welcome.

    If you set up as a pop email and it will use a PST file which is stored locally.

    I see. Thanks a lot.

    Outlook is kind of an overkill since it is not just for to-do lists/reminders, but might settle on it if I couldn't find a better alternative.

    Thank you again for your help.
