iPhones are convenient for checking your email while on the go, especially since you can link your phone to your Outlook account and have work or personal email at hand when you need it. Even if you've read a mail, you might want to mark it as unread again. Whether this is to remind yourself to look at it later or to alert others sharing the email account to the fact that it needs to be read, you can mark the email as unread on your iPhone and it will appear that way the next time you view it in Outlook.
Open the email in the Outlook folder within your iPhone mail software.
Click on "Details" next to the "From" line at the top of the email, which displays the sender's email address.
Tap "Mark as Unread" and you will now see a blue dot next to the email when you view it in your iPhone inbox. It will also be marked as unread in your Outlook inbox when viewed in a Web browser.
Tips & Warnings
- If you open the email again after marking it as unread, you will have to repeat this process.
