Is there any way in Outlook 2010 to pull up a list of items that are currently snoozed? For example, let's say two weeks out I set a reminder to pop up on Friday for an important lunch meeting the following Monday (I like to be reminded of Monday tasks before the weekend). When the reminder pops up on Friday, I snooze it for three days so that it will pop up again right before lunch on Monday. Then Monday rolls around and my memory is fuzzy and I'm a bit paranoid that I accidentally dismissed the reminder on Friday instead of correctly snoozing it. I can still see the original appointment on my calendar, but I need to ensure that I'm actually going to have the reminder pop up when I expect it to so that I don't miss my meeting.

Is there any way in Outlook 2010 to pull up a list of the reminders that are currently snoozed? This would also be helpful for those cases where I complete a task whose reminder I had snoozed until later, and I now want to pull up the snoozed reminder and cancel it.

According to this View snoozed items forum post, it is not possible to see a list of snoozed items. The post suggests that you may be able to see a limited amount of helpful information by creating a custom view which displays some of the reminder fields.
