Reflagging mail in FirstClass mobile

The more I use FirstClass mobile, the more I like it. It is a powerful application, and I am always poking around to explore new features and discover how much of the full desktop client functionality is packed into this app.

One of the features I have always liked about the desktop client is that you can reflag a message from ‘read’ to ‘unread’. I use this technique to track important messages so I don’t lose track of my followups, to do’s and time sensitive items. Initially I could not figure out how to do this in the mobile client. However, I did discover how to do this the other day.

Here is a view from my mailbox. Note the ‘tech in schools study’ message has been read (flag gone).

Now, tap the ‘edit’ button. This will cause the > symbols to change to radio buttons.

Next, tap the radio buttons to select the message (or multiple messages). A check mark will appear in the radio button to indicate the message has been selected.

Now, tap the flag symbol in the bottom menu bar to restore the mail flag indicator to the message.

Once the flag icon is tapped, the screen returns to the main mailbox view, with the display showing the updated flags.

I hope you enjoy the additional mailbox functionality in the mobile client to help you stay organized.
