I got an email, but with a note 'please treat this as private'. Is this an option outlook gives to folks when they send emails; if so, where are those options?

    This option is given while composing a new Email under 'Options' under sensitivity tab.

    Yes, when composing a new message if you goto options you can set it to "personal" this makes it appear with a little blue arrow in your inbox.

    Sorry it's actualy under properties not options as both myself and the previous poster said.

    The blue arrow is the Low Importance arrow and this is under options.

    If you want to set it as private you need to goto file > properties then change the sensitivity setting,.
