I have an insane amount of red-marked Outlook mails (800). Is there a way to unmark the oldest 700 of them (alternatively to unmark mails which are older than a certain date)? Can this be done without unmarking everything and without clicking 700 times?

By marked do you mean they were flagged for follow up? The due date has passed so they turn red? – Raystafarian Feb 4 '12 at 21:52
Yes, red for follow up. – usr Feb 4 '12 at 23:49

Go to tasks - view tab - change view - detailed list This should bring them up as a list that you can sort by due date. Pick your date, select the top one and go to the bottom and hold shift click to select them all. right click - mark complete and they will no longer be red

If you have tasks in there as well, sort by folder and do the above steps for each folder you'd like to clear out
