How to mark an email 'urgent' automatically in outlook using rules.

Hello Guys

I have to setup a rule in my outlook email , that if an email from a specific sender comes, it should be marked as urgent and be forwarded to another email account. I can setup the rule with 'recipient' and 'forward'. But can't seem to figure out if there is anything I can do about marking as urgent. Is it doable.

thanks so much, but it says that 'it is a client rule and will only work when outlook is running' Does that mean the rule won't work if I am not logged on to outlook when the message arrives.??
Yes it is a client rule. The thing is, you can only see the exclamation mark in outlook, so when you open your outlook, it will apply
