Outlook: Flagging Outgoing Messages

Sending an email to someone and want to make sure you stay on whatever task or question you have asked them? FLAG the outgoing email.

You can:

  • Add a flag to an email – which will simply place an item in your To Do list. A flag will simply add the subject (of the outgoing email) to your To Do list. It will stay there until you mark the task as done;
  • Add a reminder to an email – which will also add the subject (of the outgoing email) to your To Do list – but it was also cause a pop-up reminder to appear – just like a calendar appointment reminder;
  • Add a reminder to the email that causes the reminder to be added to the recipients email program.
