    On an iPad 2 running 6.0.1 (10A523).

    Flagging works for gmail and accounts. None of which are setup as exchange accounts.

    Setup work exchange account, using the add account, exchange, method. I have tried with and without domain. I have changed push/pull, number of days to sync, number of messages to review. The exchange account is the primary account for mail, contacts, and calendar. Activesync.

    Yet I do not have the ability to Flag email in the exchange account. My fellow colleagues can on their iPads, and iPhones. Same mail setup and settings, and software versions.

    Tried it on my wife's 4s, same result.

    This is a huge hang up for me, as I have to migrate from BB to either IOS or Win 8. Any suggestions out there?

    I've lost it also on my Google Apps setup through Exchange.

    iPhone 5, 6.0.2

    Haven't checked iPad.

    For my iPhone w/6.0.1, flagging works for me in an Exchange2010 account set up via Sherweb.

    With my Gmail accounts set up via Exchange, the flag function only offers to mark as unread.

    Our devices still on iOS5 can flag in their Gmail setup via Exchange.

    I don't know what caused the change. I also don't know why your Exchange account isn't able to flag if your co-workers can.

    If you flag something via your computer client or the OWA, does the flag show on your iPhone?

    Flagged exchange messages do not show up flagged in ios. Using exchange webmail I do not have the ability to flag either, however flagged and completed messages are designated.

    Strange the webmail app says "Legacy Webmail Client". Implying a modern one?

    Can't use Sherweb for policy reasons.

    I have microsoft exchange online to host my emails and I have three sub-folders under Inbox. If I flag an email under these sub-folders, it won't showing on iOS mail's default "flagged" folder. The Mac 10.8 Mail doesn't have this issue. I really hope this will be fixed in the future.

    Don't forget that messages flagged in iOS only show up in the flagged folder IF the message itself resides in the inbox! If you flag a message that resides in the inbox and then move it to another folder, it will fall out of the flagged folder.
