I have two Exchange Accounts in my Outlook. In the standard email-view, on the right you see a list of tasks for Today, Next Month, etc.

Currently, this list displays all flagged mails of both email-accounts.

Is there a way to only show those flagged emails which belong to one email-account?

This task list on the right is called Outlook To-Do Bar. You can try to right-click it, select View Settings there, after that click Filter button.

In the Filter dialog window go to Advanced tab, click Field button, select All Mail Fields > E-mail Account in the menu.

Type part of the required account's name in the Value text box and click Add to List button below.

Click OK, then OK again. You'd now set up filtered view for your tasks in the Outlook To-Do Bar.

What do you do when this doesn't work? For me it either hides all items (including from the account you are supposed to be viewing) or it shows completed items from all accounts, contrary to the existing criteria that hide completed items! – Malvineous Mar 27 '14 at 1:39

To get my results, I left the standard filters there (Completed Date & Flag Completed Date = does not exist) and added All Mails Fields > Changed by > my email address/partial of name.

Seems to be showing me correctly. Buzz if this works for you.

What worked for me is selecting a different field in the Advanced settings as mentioned in the solution above - Organizer [contains] [part of your email address].

This is same as the other (older) answer – DavidPostill Oct 23 '14 at 9:53

Outlook 2010:

  • Go to View setting for the To-Do Bar
  • Filter->More Choices
  • Select Items Flagged by me

Apply filter.

Then go to Account Settings and remove the account you were trying to filter out, then add it again.
