I am looking for suggestions on converting mail items that are flagged to tasks. Reason: when offline and on mobile device I flag emails that I need to treat as tasks later. I have figured the code that will convert emails to tasks then move them but looking for suggestions that will look through the inbox for the flagged mail and convert. A rule does not seem to work.

I have this macro that creates a task when you flag a message. Create a Task when a Message is Flagged

This code in the Private Sub OlItems_ItemChange(ByVal Item As Object) macro does the work - so you could use a macro to run on selected messages and if flagged, process using the itemchange macro. I don't think I have any macros handy that does that, but its a good idea - if i can find the time to work on it. :)
