    Hi Everyone,

    I've spent hours searching the Internet for a solution to a problem I'm having with Outlook 2011 for Mac, but have yet to find an answer. Any help you can provide would be really apprecitaed!

    I have multiple iMacs (runing 10.6.x) accessing the same IMAP e-mail account over the Internet (not through Exchange server). The inbox and sent folders synchronize properly across the computers, except for the reply-to flags on messages that have been replied to. These reply-to flags are very important, as I need the users to be able to tell which messages have been replied to, and which are waiting for a reply.

    Other e-mail clients I've tested - Mac Mail, Entourage, Outlook 2007 & 2010 for Windows - all show the reply-to flag icon, so this appears to be a problem with Outlook 2011 not supporting that feature. I've also tested on 2 different e-mail providers and got the same results.

    Is this a case of Outlook 2011 not properly supporting IMAP? Or is there something I missed when I went through all the IMAP settings? I spent hours switching the users over from Mac Mail to Outlook, and would hate to have to spend the time to switch them all back.

    Please help!
