Add a "Flagged Email" folder in Favorites (of Navigation Pane) for Outlook 2010

I don't remember ever have to set this up before, but I don't see it in my Outlook 2010 at work.  Here are the steps:

  1. In Navigation pane, right-click on "Search Folders", select "New Search Folder"
  2. In the dialogue box, under "Reading Mail", select "Mail flagged for follow up", then click "OK"
  3. A new folder shows up in the Search Folders.  Right-click on that and select "Show in Favorites"
  4. Press the Easy button.

Gravatar I'm trying to get ALL flagged messages to show, but at the bottom it wants me to pick a single email account and I can't work out how to select them all. I think it's not possible :-(
