I don't believe so because you can't assign a flag to a task. Moreover,
search folders seem to be able to search mail folders only.
A task can have a flag, but you can't add the flag using the user interface.
It would have to be done using code. So for non-programmers you are

You could configure in the FlaggedTransactions module on the "home"

I have a strange problem with Outlook 2003. When I click on the Contacts
navigation button, The Navigation pane shows the For Follow Up folder under
My Contacts instead of Contacts. Also, the Contacts folder is not listed
under Personal Folders. However, if I click on the Folder List navigation
button I can see Contacts under Personal Folders. If I click on the
Contacts folder in that list, Contacts open in the view pane.
How do I get the Contacts nav button to display my contacts once again? The

Does anyone know if there is a setting for the "For Follow Up" folder in
Outlook's Mail window, so that when [a] I delete an item from that window, or

completed?? and that it should disappear from the window??) . . .
there would be some way of keeping track of what I did (e.g., deleting
the item or indicating that it was done, and when I deleted it, or indicated
that it was completed)? In other words, I'd like to have a sort of database

I have an outlook rule set up to:
Apply this rule after I sent the message

But, I'd like to follow up in 3 BUSINESS days. (That is, ignoring
Saturdays and Sundays).
If I send it on Monday, follow up on Thursday
But If I send it on Friday, follow up on Wednesday.

I've just added a second mailbox that is shared with my colleagues.
The problem is when i flag the messages in this new shared mailbox,
they don't appear in the "For follow up" in my favorites.
how can i make them appear?
Thanks in advance for your help!
Correct as the For Follow Up Search Folder is per mailbox only.
If you are only keeping the flagged items in a single folder of the
secondary mailbox, then you can apply a view filter to that folder to only
see the flagged items.

In previous versions of Outlook (2000 and before) I could
type in the Due By box something like: "wed 9a" and it
would set the reminder for the next Wednesday at 9 a.m.,
or I could enter "3 days 2p" and it would set it for 3

for the next 3 p.m.
These "shortcuts" no longer work. Is this a bug or changed

...red flags & marking messages for follow up in Outlook 2002 & 2003
I have Outlook 2002 on one PC and Outlook 2003 on another. I am using
Exchange 2000. If I flag a message for follow-up on Outlook 2002 a red flag
is shown on both Outlook 2002 & 2003. However, it does not show in the "for
follow up" default search on Outlook 2003 until I right-click on the flag
and select "red flag". The red flag displayed then has a red background
instead of a white one. Are Outlook 2002's red flags not quite red enough
or do I have a local problem?

...Feature "For Follow UP" does not show the messages from the "additional Mailboxes"
At work I am using Outlook 2003 on an MS Exchange Server. My profile does
show my account and the included two additional mailboxes. These are Group
MBX for different purposes.
The feature Flagged Messages does work within my Mailbox. It shows me fast
all flagged mails and the folder where the are located.
The same feature does not work within the other mailbox. It shows the number
of flagged messages but not the messages itself. When I flag a new message
the counter increases, when I remove the flag it decreases, but still it
does not show the messages. Any idea how to fix it?

You can flag items in any folder, but if you want the flag to remind you of
the item, it will need to be in your default folders (Inbox, Calendar,
Contacts, Tasks, etc). You won't get reminders for user-created folders.
However, see http://www.slovaktech.com for a product called Extended
Reminders that will help you with this.

A lot of them have strikethrough. They are not deleted. Maybe it's because

the list of active tasks?

Many times when you flag a message for follow up, you find yourself wondering
whether you will remember the details of what you are supposed to follow up

comment field to the "Flag for Follow Up" dialog box that would allow you to
jot down some brief notes on future actions would make the follow-up feature
infinitely more useful. The comment field should be user-selectable for
