What do you mean by "dismissed appointments"? You mean upcoming
appointments where you dismissed the reminders? Meeting requests you
declined?

Outlook displays all belated appointments in a separated, small dialog
window titled: NN Reminder.
There is a "Dismiss" button on this dialog.
And by "dismissed appointments" I mean an appointment in this Reminder
dialog window *after* Dismiss button pressed (after Dismiss button
this appointment will be removed from appointments list in this
dialog).

btw:
A "problem" is a little bit wider :( My problem, in fact, has a
following background: when Outlook reminds me about new appointment,
then this appointment is added to appointment list in Reminders dialog
window. But, it will be the "best", this dialog window is popped out
on front of other windows (this dialog will became active window). I
type rather fast and there were many situation that this Reminders
dialog was popped up, then I pressed D letter (during writing
something) and my appointment was accidentally dismissed :( It's
really annoying :(
So, if somebody knows, how to turn off popping up Reminders dialog
window - write a hint, please.

Kind regards,
Adam Wozniak

When you dismiss a reminder, the only aspect of an event that changes, as far
as I can tell, is that the Reminder setting changes from "Yes" to "No". In
other words, the reminder gets removed from the item. You can't search for
the absence of something.

It actually depends a lot on what type of item was dismissed in the reminder window. That window has a combined view of tasks with reminders, emails with reminders, as well as calendar items. If it was an email with a reminder then the email will still be flagged so you can still find it by sorting for flagged email. The other two are harder to track down.

Now as to your second question about how to keep getting reminder but not have the reminder window pop-up on you. Here is what I do. I have at least one reminder which I never clear. This means when I start Outlook the reminder window comes up right away. Then instead of closing it, I just minimize it. It will not pop-up anymore. When you need to see if you have any reminders you will need to click on the task bar and bring up the reminder window. That's just what I do.
