I was able to flag an email yesterday.

Today, it no longer appears as flag.

I also lose the functionality to flag any emails.


Any idea why?

iPhone 5, iOS 7

    So when u tap the flag icon within an email... What happens?

    I am having this issue too on my iPad 3rd gen. When I click the flag icon, I am given the option of marking as unread, or as junk, but not flag.

    I'm having this problem too. I have tried restarting the phone, closing the app etc, but the flag option does not reappear. If I click edit and mark all I can flag all mail, but not individual messages.

    Has anyone managed to solve this yet?

    I am experiencing this as well. Tapping the flag icon gives you the options to either Mark as unread, Move to Junk or Cancel.

    Hello all,


    If the Flag option is missing, try deleting the mail account (Settings -> Mail, Contacts, Calendars) and re-adding it.

    I think it may be something to do with gmail, or it is in my case. I've got another account which I am able to flag emails on, but not the gmail account. Something to do with google ending Exchange ActiveSync support. Existing gmail accounts continue to work but it's not possible to set up a new account.

    For those of you using ActiveSync (Exchange) to connect to a Google Apps for Business/EDU gmail account, you must specify your domain in the Settings -> Mail, Contacts, Calendars -> <your gmail account> settings for the Flag option to be available in the Mail app.
