I have edit the colors (and named) of the flags for outlook 2007.
This is how i have done it:
http://office.microsoft.com/en-gb/outlook/HA011168451033.aspx

Although the colors are changed to the toolbar, when i clik the icon the original icon is applied to the mail and NOT the new modified one.

Any idea?

When you say you "edited the colors" do you mean you took the Red Flag action button and changed it's color?

I'm using Outlook 2003, and I have 6 default flag colors.  When I do the procedure you have linked above it works as expected.

Let me know about the editing of the colors.

I believe the second link shows you how to do the Outlook 2007 version of the link you posted.

Quote from Microsoft:

In Microsoft Office Outlook 2007, flags are not associated with colors by design. To associate a color with a flagged item, you must assign a color category to the flagged item. To assign a color to an item that is flagged with a specific criterion, such as Important, you associate the item with a color category that you create for that specific criterion.



I know you want your flags to behave like they do in Outlook 2003, but Microsoft has changed the way flags work for the 2007 version.

The Microsoft link I provided give information on 3 different items relating to colors and flags.  It's not just about creating color groups, but about how to "Assign a color category to a flagged item" and how to "Use color categories to identify items".

Give the article a full read before dismissing it as being incorrect.

Good luck.
