I'm not sure what "log in" means  in your environment. If you're using X
you could do something like this:

Identify a message for which you want a reminder

Use "mark -seq remind" to add the message to the remind sequence
or use "refile -link +Reminders" to link the message into a folder

Then in your .xsession you could place:

REMINDERS=`scan +folder -width 132 remind`
test "$REMINDERS" && xmessage -default okay -center -timeout 60 "$REMINDERS"

Or if using a folder:

REMINDERS=`scan +Reminders -width 132`
test "$REMINDERS" && xmessage -default okay -center -timeout 60 "$REMINDERS"

Then when  done you remove the  message from either the  sequence or the
