Flagged email messages don't show in task list

Not open for further replies.


Outlook 2010, Windows 7 (64-bit)

I have a local folder in Outlook where I save email.

It used to be that when I flagged items in this folder, they would show up in my task list.

Now when I flag items in this folder they do not show up in my task list.

Please help!


I ran this and it did not work - i just rest my TO DO bar.

I still have items flagged in my personal/local folders that don't show up in the TO DO list.

This seems like an Outlook bug.

Are these folders in the same message store (PST) that is your default message store or are they in other message stores? (like Archive.pst)



Hi Ben,

Here's my situation:

The folder in question is in C:\Users\<username>\Documents\Outlook Files\<filename>.pst

All my other Outlook folders (essentially for each of my email accounts) are associated with PST files that are in C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook\

Based on your question, I'm guessing that maybe my problem is caused by the fact that the .pst for the folder I'm complaining about is where it is. But I'm pretty sure that's where Outook put it when I made it (?).

Any thoughts on what I should do from here?

I was thinking:

- Make a new folder

- Make sure the PST is in C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook\

- Copy the messages from the folder that I'm complaining about to the new one that I created

- Backup and delete the original folder
