    Hi all,

    I Flag emails that I need to follow up on. Because of space issues, I need to filter my emails into different folders, so what happens I read an email, flag it and then I forget about it because I can't see I have items I have flagged. I've been marking the flagged emails as unread so I have the red number beside the folder name, but if I go and read the email again, I lose the number.

    Is there a way to have the flagged emails added to my task list?

    Hi Karleen77

    Yes, a Follow Up task can be created, the messages you want to follow up can be added to the Task using: Insert > Item

    Or, you can create individual Reminders for your messages and set times for the reminders to pop up.
    You can also place the command: Add Reminder to the message Toolbar, this should reduce the mouse clicks needed to add a reminder to the message.
    Personally, I have also added the command: Mark as Unread on my message Toolbar.

    If the Default formatting is in effect in Outlook, Overdue Reminders should also appear in Red font in Outlook.

    A new Search folder can also be created and Customized to only search in specific folders for items marked for: Follow Up.
    Search folders created by you can be customized to search for a specific color of flagged messages.
    If you use the Favorite Folders, the Search folder can also be added to that area.

    Let us know if any of the above work for you or not, or if you need further clarification.
