Email Alerts when past due date
I am new to the forum. I installed Redmine on my company intranet a few months ago and so far I love all the features. It hasn't been rolled out company-wide yet, and one of the reasons is the lack of email notification or alerts when an issue is past its due date. I tried to search the site for reports of this issue but haven't found anything. Is there something like this in the works? It should be a pretty straight forward addition, since emails are already generated when a new issue is created.
Thanks and great work!

Thank you for the quick reply!
I tried to run the rake command and got an error:
C:\Program Files\BitNami Redmine Stack\82\ruby\bin>rake redmine:send_reminders d ays=3 RAILS_ENV="production" rake aborted! Unable to determine home path environment variable. C:/Program Files/BitNami Redmine Stack/82/ruby/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/rake-0.8.2 /lib/rake.rb:2398:in `win32_system_dir' (See full trace by running task with --trace)
As you can see I am using a windows server environment and used the Bitnami distro to install Redmine
I used the setenv script before running the rake command also
set PATH=C:\Program Files\BitNami Redmine Stack\82/imagemagick;C:\Program Files\BitNami Redmine Stack\82\ruby\bin;C:\Program Files\BitNami Redmine Stack\82/subversion\bin;C:\Program Files\BitNami Redmine Stack\82/mysql\bin;%PATH% set MAGICK_CODER_MODULE_PATH=C:\Program Files\BitNami Redmine Stack\82/imagemagick\modules\coders set RUBYOPT=rubygems

From my experience with redmine, the notifications are in-advance of the due date (they do not alert you to past-due items). Not good for keeping the ball rolling (e.g. when a major deadline rolls by & loads of tickets are suddenly past-due).
I understand the logic, but IMO it is a bug. I also find the filtering-by-due-date to be very clumsy. :(

Thanks for the hint @Alexey Lustin ! :)
Does anybody know if there will be an GUI Handling of this feature any time soon too?
