Show only unread or flagged or todays mail in Outlook

I use this filter so that I can manage my inbox in outlook. It means that once I’ve read a message, it isn’t shown unless I flag it. I also have a filter that keeps todays mail shown too.

Adding the “Change View” option to the quick launch bar makes changing between views less painful. Go to the “View” ribbon and then right click “change view” and “add to quick access toolbar”:
Add to quick access toolbarSelect “Manage Views”:
Manage ViewsSelect New, and give it a name, hit ok:
New ViewSelect “Filter”, and enter one of these:
a)  Only unread and flagged:
(“urn:schemas:httpmail:read” = 0) OR (“” > 1)
b)  Unread, flagged and todays messages:
(“urn:schemas:httpmail:read” = 0) OR (“” > 1) OR (“urn:schemas:httpmail:datereceived” >= ‘Today’)
