I have a simple mail form.  I would like to mark it important.  ie add the little red flag in outlook.  Is it possible to do in PHP?
mail($to, $subject, $body, $header);

Hi,

This relates to the header that is sent.

I do not think this is available in the standard mail class, however with some of the extensions this is possible.

I use the one below - that has the ability to set the priority of an email.

Adding headers should do the trick

$headers .= "X-Priority: 1\n";
$headers .= "X-MSMail-Priority: High\n";

hmm.  that worked.

Technically Raynards answer is now incorrect because you can with the standard mail class add the High Priority.

I'm going to post to community support because I don't know how I can change it.
