When I add my wife's email account to my Outlook all a lot of her tasks show up in my task list. I do not want to see her tasks. Her tasks look like they were created from her email messages. Cannot figure out how to filter hers out. Any help??

FYI both of our emails are Gmail

Thanks
 
Her tasks look like they were created from her email messages

Did she flag the messages? Not that is really matters - but if you add her account as an account, you will see her tasks and flagged messages in the to-do list. You can filter out accounts, flags etc - the tasks in to-do support a single custom view.

This shows how to show tasks, not flagged messages - you can also filter on account to show only your tasks.

 
Diane,

Thank you. Got it straightened out now. Filtering both Task View and To Do Bar.
