Using Flags with Follow-up alarms is a really useful way of tracking your "To Action" items in Lotus Notes generated by incoming email, especially when you are not able to action that message immediately.
A great feature of using Flags with Alarms is that you can then get these messages OUT of your Inbox - which reduces the clutter - while still allowing you to keep track of messages that require you to "Action" them in some way.
Don't forget, in Lotus Notes it DOES NOT matter where a message has been filed (If you put messages into folders), once you have flagged a message for "Follow-Up", ALL of these messages are visible from your Mail database's Navigator using the "Follow-Up" view. (note: Unless you deleted the message!)
Get Productive, use Follow-Up flags with Alarms in Lotus Notes to keep track of Actionable items!
