Stupid Outlook Issue

OK, my patience has run out.  I am trying to create a rule on a SENT message.  When I send any message flagged for follow-up, I want to place a copy in my Inbox which I have sorted to easily view flagged messages.

No--I don't want to cc or bc myself when I send a message, and yes I will do it thru vb if I have to.  But before all that, am I missing something in the rules wizard?  Or has MS just dropped that particular ball?

I am using both Outlook 2K & XP (different machines)

I looked and couldn't find anything... but maybe you'll look better :-)

the other option I can think of would be to use a specific template for messages you want to flag and set your rule to check for the template.

Weird...it seems you can set it for importance or sensitivity but not by flag status.

MS may have dropped that ball...

I have been around ght block a few times on this and the only way to do this is thru VBA.
