Pin important messages

When you have important messages that you want to be able to see quickly, use our pin feature. Pinned messages are flagged as special.

Pinned messages and conversations can be set up so that you see them at the top of your folder. You can also search for pinned messages.

If you have auto-purge set up, any pinned messages in that folder or label will not be purged.
