I want to flag certain emails in my inbox for follow-up, but I don't want them to display in my tasks (which is the default behavior).

You can right-click the newly-created task that references the email you just flagged and select "Remove from List" but this removes the flag in your email. You can also move the emails to a separate .pst folder that is outside of the .pst/.ost/Exchange file that contains your To-Do List - but I want to keep them all in my default Exchange Inbox/.ost.

Is it possible to prevent flagged emails from showing up in your task or To-Do List in Outlook 2010?

Go to the tasks area and right click arrange by and go to filter

  1. Go to Advanced tab
  2. Down at Define more criteria
  3. Drop down Field - All mail fields - Message Class
  4. Condition: contains
  5. Value: task
  6. Add to list

Now it will only show tasks, not flagged emails
