Chapter 9. Outlook Essentials > Creating Reminders and Flagging Items for Follo...

Creating Reminders and Flagging Items for Follow-Up

Outlook allows you to attach pop-up reminders to any type of item except a note. In the case of appointments and tasks, the default form allows you to define the date and time when you want to see a reminder. For an e-mail message or Contact item, you must cre ate a follow-up flag before you can set a reminder.

In some cases, reminders and follow-up flags simply won't work. For an explanation, see"Alarms Fail to Go Off," and "Alarms Work Only in Four Key Folders" in the "Troubleshooting" section at the end of this chapter.
