Hour 9. Keeping Email Organized > Using Quick Flags

Using Quick Flags

Because flagging every message that needed action with an identical red flag meant every message was flagged, many users adopted the unread method of mail management. All unread messages needed action and Outlook's feature of automatically marking mail viewed in the preview pane as read is disabled. Flags and reminders were reserved for only the most important messages.

Quick Flags will change message management for many users. Flagging your messages with different-colored flags means that every message no longer has an identical flag. You can customize the mail list view and remove the flag field from your normal view, and use Search Folders to view only the flagged messages. Using customized Search Folders, you can see filtered views of all the messages in your mailbox.
