email category flags

New Contributor

I have lost the ability to create and asign Category flags to my emails.

you must have accidentally messed it up the scope ...
set the current scope from 'Current Mailbox' to 'All Mailboxes' then and make it default in File > Option > Search > Results. Then select a 'Sent' (date) search, your categories will appear there.

Please let me know if this helps,

thanks but no, that's not it.  The actual functionality of tagging an item with a category flag or even making it a High Priority message has disappeared. 

Can you provide me a screenshot of it ?

Also what platform is this on?

Are you on Outlook ProPlus (Office 365), 2016, 2013?

Is this OWA?


bit hard, not sure what I can screen shot when I can't make it appear.  I'm a bit stumped.
