MS OUTLOOK 2010 - adding Add'l Columns to identify emails by

Posted on 2014-07-22

Last Modified: 2016-01-25
Just like we have tags to emails like "Categories", "Follow-Up", etc.  -  I noticed that we can add more columns - that can be even "user-named".   And - type of data can be specified for these to being number or text or even yes/no.  So - I went ahead and added a couple of such columns.  But - it's not allowing me to enter anything into these columns per email.  


Is there a step that I have missed?  

I have Document Number - where I'm want to enter in the posted-document number that that email perstains to - in terms of a journal entry.

I have a "yes/no" column - titled "Archive" - where I want to tag each email with a yes or a no.  Even this column is not working - not allowing me to enter into there.

Please advise , Please help,  
Thank you.

Right click on the column headers and select View Settings... from the context menu.
Click the Other Settings... button
Check the Allow in-cell editing check-box.
Doing the above allows me to check/uncheck a custom Yes/No column in my Outlook 2010 reading pane.
