    E-Mail Flags (Outlook XP)

    when I flag an e-mail for action, is there a way to set a reminder in my tasks from that flag, or do I just need to review my e-mails? Example. I received an e-mail on Saturday that I need to follow up on on Monday, and I want to set a reminder to do that from the flag box.
    Thanks
    Thanks John

    I think the reminders dialog for email messages is independent of the tasks list: you can set a reminder with the flag button, but to get it onto the tasks list, you have to do something completely different. (I'm on 2003 now, so I can't reconstruct how it used to work in 2002.)

    In 2003, the reminder options for a message don't appear to have any relation to tasks. It is now really easy (one-click, no dialogs) to flag a message WITHOUT setting a reminder, which to me is a design mistake.
