Flag Email for Follow-up in Outlook

Assign flags to your email messages in Outlook to remind yourself to follow up on an issue. You can also use flags to categorize messages in your inbox. There are six colors - red, blue, yellow, green, orange, and purple - that can be used to mean different things. Message flags are displayed in the last column of the Inbox view.

Flag icons are displayed on the right side of each message.
The flag drop-down menu appears when icon is right-clicked.

You can use message flags to do the following:

  • To flag a message with a particular color, right-click the flag that corresponds to the message and then select the flag color.
  • To flag a message as complete, right-click the message, and then click Flag Complete.
  • To sort your messages by color, click the flag column heading.
  • To clear a flag from a message, right-click the mesage, and then click Clear Flag.
