Adding flags in Mail on iOS

ios

#1

I just flagged some email in Mail.app on my iPad and then I archived then. But when I go to “Flagged” mail in the app, then nothing appears. I use hover.com for email. Perhaps they don’t support flags or something…


#2

Apple only show flagged emails when in the inbox, so they won’t show when you archived them.


#3

I have to do a search for flagged and then they show up.


#4

They do on the Mac, so its ridiclous that it doesnt work on iOS, but thanks :blush:

As @Mahoneym mentioned, you can access Flagged messages that are stored outside of the Inbox. Tap on the Search field then tap on Flagged Messages.

It would be good if this were more obvious. Also, I sometimes use different colour flags on Mail for Mac, but they all show as orange on iOS.
