Creating filter to define Outlook view based on Follow Up Flag

Hi,
can you advice me how to create a filter for Outlook to view only
messages which have Follow Up Flag set?
It is in Customize View - Filter - Advanced
when I enter "Follow Up Flag" "is empty" then I can see messages
with follow up flag set but I can see messages with "tick mark" as well.
So I assume that I should enter something like
"Follow Up Flag" "contains" "value".
But what is the correct value to show just messages with the follow up flag?

Thanks.

Hi, dataline.

Use "Flag Status" instead of "Follow Up Flag" and set the value to "Followup Flag".

Hi BlueDevilFan,
this does not work. When I use this the I see no messages - the window is empty.
The only filter when I see them is "Follow Up Flag" is "not empty".
I really do not know why your suggestion does not work. It seems to be logical,
but probably the flag which I get by clicking at the message is not "Followup Flag"
but something else. But I do not know how to find out.

Hi,
sure I can. Here is it.
The first two messages have the "check mark" and the next two have the "follow up" flag.
I would like to see only the messages with "follow up flag" and not those with checkmarks
and not those with nothing.

I have found a filter which does what I want:
Flag Status not equal to Completed
Follow Up Flag is not empty

However your suggested filter
Flag Status is Followup Flag
does not work.
So my original question - what are the possible values for the Flag Status - is still unanswered.

You're right.  Apologies.  Here's a screen shot of the filter setting that does work.
