Hi :)

Is there a way to search in outlook for items that are NOT marked as complete (or at least have no flag). I would also like to combine this search with a category search so that the result is the emails that are both in a specific category & not marked as complete.

The best I could find was to do so via the 'Advanced Find' feature, but I don't like this interface too much. Is there a way to do so via the normal search bar?

Thank you

Sure, it is actually quite easy to do this from the Search field;
