Flag for FollowUp Fails to Remind if Msg is in Subfolder

Hi gang.  I'm running Outlook 2000 and notice that the "flag for follow-up" feature is only producing pop-up reminders when the message that's flagged resides in a top-level folder.  If I move the message to a subfolder, the reminder fails to appear...even though I still see it in the message if I re-open it.  Searched MS Technet to see if this is a software limitation, but cannot find any mention of such a scenario.  Anyone know of a work-around, short of organizing everything in top-level folders?  Thanks!

I think they intend to put every followup item at the top level and the subfolders are just for storage.  I don't like this but I think this is the way they do it.  Work around....um...create your own calendar event and set the reminder yourself?
