Outlook: Set a reminder to follow up on an email


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.

Here’s how:

  1. Set a follow up flag on an email by clicking on the flag icon in your inbox.
    SS-2010.08.12-08.12.56
  2. Right-click on the flag to set a reminder.
    SS-2010.08.12-08.13.44
  3. Select a date/time for the reminder and click OK.
    Custom-2010.08.12-08.14.15

Now you will get a pop-up reminder for the email just like a reminder for a calendar item.
