How to add follow up folder to favorites in Outlook?

Sometimes you may mark received email messages with flags, indicating or reminding yourself you will follow up them later. However, most of time there are too many email messages to find out the flagged ones at a glance. Actually you can create and add a virtual For Follow Up Folder in the navigation pane, and view all flagged email messages in this folder easily.

Step 2: Create a new search folder:

  1. In Outlook 2010 / 2013, please click the New Search Folder button in the New group on the Folder tab.
  2. In Outlook 2007, please click the File > New > Search Folder.

It is also available to click the Search Folder > New Search Folder in the Navigation Pane. And this method works fine in Outlook 2007, 2010, and 2013.

Step 3: In the New Search Folder dialog box, select and highlight the Mail flagged for follow up item in the Select a search Folder: box.

Step 4: Click OK button.

Now a new search folder of For Follow Up is added in the Navigation Pane, which will collect all flagged email messages automatically.

Step 4: Right click the For Follow Up folder in the Navigation Pane, and then click the Show in Favorites item in the right-click menu.

Up to now the For Follow Up folder is added to your favorites at the top of Navigation Pane in Microsoft Outlook.

In the For Follow Up folder, you will view all email messages with flags you marked before. Once you clear the flag mark in an email message, the message will disappear from the For Follow Up folder automatically.

    Thanks! In the search folder of flagged emails, do you know how to group them by conversation, so I can see the other emails in the conversation that are related to my flagged email?
