I think what you are looking for is a package called rt-remind and
rt-escalate (http://www.cs.kent.ac.uk/people/staff/tdb/rt3/)  They're
for RT3 but it should be easy to hack them to do what you want with RT2.

These scripts are based on the priority value, which I assume RT2 has -
I've never used it!
