One particular email in Outlook inbox is red


What would cause one particular email in my Outlook (2010) inbox list to turn red?

Like everyone (I assume), I get a plethora of new emails in my inbox every day and have another plethora of them stacking up faster than I can ever seem to get to them. However, I don't think I remember one of them changing to red.

It's from a known recipient with whom I correspond frequently. I've opened it and read some of it but have not yet sent a reply. Also, I can't remember if it was red from the outset but I don't think it was.

I've got my inbox columns configured to display in the following order:

       Icon — Attachment — From — Subject — Received — Category…

and the info in each column is in a red font — but only for that email.

Is it something the sender did or is it something I did inadvertently?

By default, only overdue emails are red. These ones that have flag with due date set.

Hmm…I don't even know how to do that (ie set a due date) so it must have come that way from that sender.

Many thanks for the responses.
You're welcome, Steve. As always, happy to help. Regards, Joe
