I saw an old thread with the same question, but it ended up in a dead end. Perhaps today there are new development around this.
When I send a message that I just want to make sure I will get a response, I flag it, but once I got the response I just want to remove the flag automatically. Drives me crazy doing it manually.

Looks like the only way would be some VBA code , am I right!?

You need to use a macro - I have one somewhere. At least I thought I did. I found this one - it works on incoming mails (such as system alerts where you are notified on a schedule - if a message doesn't arrive, you're notified).

I'll keep looking for the one I think I have or tweak that one - what you'll do it watch for messages with Re in the subject and search the sent folder (or the reminders).

I have some knowledge limitations in outlook macros, but I will try to adapt this one to my usage. In general , I am looking for more productive follow-up methods, making less clicks as possible.

I used the one that you referenced above Diane, I am noticing though that it is very slow at processing. It will sometimes run into an error and stop processing, then I have to run it on Unread messages in the Inbox, which can take 30-60 per email it processes, not sure why. It looks at incoming messages, if they meet the criteria to be marked for Follow up, it is set, a catagory is set and it is moved to a specific folder. They are received daily and when I new one is received, it will unset the old one and set the new one.

Maybe you can take a look at this and let me know what might be causing it to be so slow. As I was typing this, I was thinking that maybe I only need to keep the most current and delete the old ones as a new one is received, not sure if that would speed up the process or not.

Thank you,
Stephen

It will be slow if you have a lot of messages in the inbox. I'll take a look and see if it can be sped up - we might be able to make it more efficient - one method would be to check only messages that arrived 'recently' instead of reading the entire mailbox.
