Flagging messages in OL 2002

Hi,
I know that I can flag messages, so that a flag is visible to the recipients.
My question is: how do I flag message, so that the flag itself is invisible to the recipients. Someone may ask why do I need it and the answer is pretty simple: I want to setup a rule, so that depending on the flag and some other conditions, the email will be saved in one of my personal folders.

Thanks!

I don't believe you can.  The purpose of a flag is to send the user an indication of what to do with the email.
I would suggest using keywords in the body of the email.  You can go a few lines below the actual email and put the folder it is to go in with ** on each side.  This way it does not impede the email itself and gets filed as you desire.

For example, an email with **FRED** as the last line would be moved to the desired folder by a rule looking for that and other parameters.

You could try and send these messages with an odd combination of importance (say 'low') and sensitivity (say 'normal' or 'personal') (or ???). The create your rule to apply only to messages meeting these unusual criteria and the other conditions you mentioned. If importance and sensitivity are already part of your criteria, there are many other ways of creating specific conditions such as the one noted by slink9.

Well, maybe there is a way to create user specific flags or something similar. This is for work, so it will look weird if start using personal sensitivity for work related issues or start putting some unusual lines.
