How does it remind you?  A pop-up per message?  Highlighting then when
you happen to list that folder?  Putting them at the top of the folder?

Well, I use at(1) to generate future reminder emails, but nmh methods
could include anno(1) to add a header to the email, or mark(1) to put it
in a sequence, and then your other nmh-wrapping commands from ~/bin
could pick(1) out that header, or use that sequence, to show you those
emails.  One could imagine ~/.profile scan(1)-ing them, for example.

Cheers, Ralph.
