I've used the News Groups Rules to flag msg's from me as watched,
and I see the spectacles icon against them.

But when I select Show Flagged Msg's from the Views Bar,
nothing appears.

I'm using Outlook Express under XP.

Hope you can help,
Peter.

I think you may be confusing "watched" messages (the spectacles) with
"flagged" messages (the red flag). Try CTRL + H to show only your watched
messages. Repeat to go back to regular view.

Slight correction. CTRL + H will show threads with messages from you, not
limited to "flagged" messages. It won't show flagged messages/threads to
which you personally did not respond/post. I mark all messages to which I
respond as watched so it works out the same for me. You can click the top
row where the picture of the spectacles is shown to bring all watched
messages to the top.

My apologies for the confusion.

Thanks, you've found the problem.

I can't find any ctrl-H on the menus, where would it be?
Are there other secret commands?

I'm still a bit confused because my home machine
has a Views line that shows the spectacled msg's.
Someone else set that up.

Peter.

CTRL + H on the keyboard. (both at the same time)

Interestingly none of the lists of keyboard shortcuts I could find include
the CTRL + H combination but I use it all the time. (must really be a secret
:-)

Here is one such list;

I've added a new view I call Watched:

View > Current Views > Define Views > New >
"Where the message is watched Show the message"

This way I don't have to remember ^H.

Thanks again,
Peter.
