    Default Send message as "Urgent"

    I'm still looking around but I can't seem to find it ... is there a way to mark a message as urgent (or change the priority) before sending it? I don't see anything in the compose window under options but that doesn't mean it isn't possible

    Thanks!!

    Is there any way to vote *against* a bug?

    If something is urgent, say so in the subject line, or find a way to reduce the volume of your mail (RSS, Wikis) such that messages don't need to be marked "urgent" to be read. Look how many spammers flag their messages X-MSMail-Priority: High.

    (Sorry. Feel free to ignore the curmudgeonly troll.)

    Default What, No Priority Settings?

    My company just recently purchased a Network License for Zimbra. This morning a customer asked how to set priorities. I *assumed* they were simply overlooking this basic functionality that has been in every mail client I can recall.

    After looking around, I could not find how to set the flag either. So, I came here to read this!?

    Can ANYONE speak to the plans to get this included ASAP!? From reading the bug reports, this has been logged as a "Bug" since 2005. In my mind this isn't a bug, but standard email functionality which is required by an email client. You may be for or against the use of marking messages as urgent, but that is an irrelevant arguement. I personally hate emails which have urgent flags set; however, I still recognize that most *business-users* expect this functionality in place.

    It's actually marked as an Enhancement (or RFE) and not a bug. To answer your main point, the important information in the RFE is the targeted release and for this it's GunsNRoses which is the next but one major Release of Zimbra. My estimate (and that's all it is at the moment) is that it will be available very late this year or early next year. You can follow product development via the Product Portal.

    You can also add your vote to that RFE and send a case to support and ask for that to be added as well, that will give it additional 'weight'.

    Easy. Use zmmailbox to create a filter rule for everyone in the company to label any message from internal addresses,without Received: headers suggesting forgery, and with "urgent" in the subject line as label Urgent, colored red.

    This is easier to use than a new "urgent" or "priority" button; more "secure" because it doesn't privilege spam messages that set x-priority; allows induhviduals to change the rule behavior or label color; and more functional, because induhviduals can be taught how to change the color of the "urgent" label (which some induhviduals may consider critical functionality; I'm sure Microsoft has spent millions of dollars of pocket change on that) or even how to mark messages from certain people as "urgent" regardless of subject.

    Default So...

    Is message importance in Zimbra 5.0? Or is this still being worked on?
