Lots of little things annoy me in Office 2007 but one thing I really missed from Outlook 2003 was the ability to flag messages and have them appear in a folder in my Mailbox. Outlook 2007 has a To Do Bar that you can open with the View Menu, but I liked the old For Follow Up folder in Outlook 2003.
Well, I just stumbled upon the solution a few minutes ago. Within the Mailbox is a folder called Search Folders. Right clicking on Search Folders allows me to create a new one and one of the search criteria that can be selected is “Mail flagged for follow up” I also thought he colored flags had disappeared from Outlook. It turns out they have been replaced with colored categories that the user can actually name. That’s the little square that appears before the flag.
I have decided I do not hate Outlook 2007 quite as much as I did this morning.
