Setting Urgency

If you want to mark your message as of high importance  there is a red exclamation mark at the top of the message creation window that you can click to mark it as important.  You can see in the example above that the background of this icon is a paler grey, this is because this message has been marked as of high importance. Further options for urgency and confidentiality are available if you click on the Options button at the top of the screen, this brings up the window below which gives options to set the message as confidential, request receipts and add voting buttons.

If a message has been marked as of high or low importance you will see the following icons in the Importance column of your Outlook Inbox. 

High Importance

Low Importance
