Flags are tools that come in handy to manage your emails and organize them for easier identification at a later time. Zoho Mail provides three types of flags that can be applied to emails. 

  • Important (Red)
  • Info (Blue)
  • Follow-up (Green)

Flag Single Email

If you want to mark an email with an important flag (red flag), you can simply click on the grayed out flag icon to the left of your email. 

To add any of the three flags to an email, follow the steps below:

  1. Locate the email that you would like to add the flag to, in the email listing pane.
  2. Right click the grayed out flag icon to the left of the email.
  3. Choose the relevant flag from the listing. 

You can also add flags to emails from the email viewing pane. 

  1. Open the email that you'd like to view.
  2. Locate the flag icon below the sender's email address.
  3. Right click on the flag icon, and choose the relevant flag from the listing.

After you add the Follow-Up flag for emails that need to be followed up with, you can also associate Tasks and reminders with these emails. 

Flag Multiple Emails 

To flag multiple emails, follow these steps:

  1. Select the emails to which you would like to add a flag in the email listing pane. 
  2. Click the More Actions icon and choose the Flag As option from the listing.

Zoho Mail provides options to view all emails containing flags in a single view.
