I use flags quite often to manage my e-mail, and I use the quick flag button
column to set the flag. But when I flag an e-mail, the default is "Follow
Up." Is there any way to set the default to "Read"?

I'm using Office 2003 in XP Professional.

Thanks,

Fred

No, the default 'flag for' is always followup.

Well, that sucks. (Excuse me -- what I really meant to say is that that's
less than fully satisfying.)
