Many Outlook users know how to set a follow up flag on an email. If that’s not enough to ensure action, you can set a reminder so that there’s no excuse for not responding.
- Set a follow up flag on an email by clicking on the flag icon in your inbox.
- Right-click on the flag to set a reminder.
- Select a date/time for the reminder and click OK.
Now you will get a pop-up reminder for the email just like a reminder for a calendar item.
