Pin email messages to top of list

When going thru my emails there are some that I really want to keep at the top so I don’t have to scroll thru all the emails again until I find it Is there any way to ‘pin’ emails that are important me??


The flag option is meant to identify messages that are important or need action.  

You can also change the sort order to Sort by Flag, with the secondary sort set to Received. That way the flagged messages will always be at the top and all the others in the normal received sort order below. They will also appear in your Agenda Sidebar if you have that visible.

This is a nice solution, but then the unflagged messages are no longer separated by days… Too bad.

Since I commented on this, eM Client has a new feature - tag folders. So now you can tag your important messages, and view them in the default sort order and separated by days in their own folder.

Of course the flagged folder is still there as well for the same purpose.

This is a great feature! But it’s not for the same purpose, in my opinion.
I think it would be convenient to have the possibility to “pin” important messages at the top of the list as Jenn suggested, without any impact on the other-email list. You have to have the important messages under your eyes, and not in a different folder.

Yes, this is definitely needed. Many other email services have this, and BrunoS is right, the proposed alternatives do not really address the problem. A simple ‘pin to top’ facility would be extremely useful.

This is fairly new on O365 and I would love to see it here too! I do flag things I need and revisit them, but some things are so important I need to keep them in my face until they are completed. Like a sticky note on my screen.


Me too, I loved this feature on outlook, when they took it out from the email client it was such a shame.
My reason for using it is as follows (for Gary’s benefit). I make Categories using the tag system because they come with a colour. These categories are based on my priority matrix (Important, urgent, not important,not urgent, pending, special, personal) From those categories I want to be able to pin things that I need to refer back to a lot, to the top. For instance:

  • an email some one sent me with dates/instructions ( half a year ago)
  • left over tasks from last week
  • my boss’ last reply (from 3 weeks ago) to something that is no longer in my
  • the documents the insurance company sent me 3 months ago in our ongoing and very slow correspondence
  • my next most important task from the matrix

Please make pinning possible. It’s a simple feature that makes a big difference for some of us.


I’m fairly new to EM Client but I too miss the ability to pin important emails to the top of the list. Is it possible to bump this request?

i can see that the flag system is similar but to be honest it’s not nearly as convenient.

I’m coming from Outlook, Thunderbird, and the last one Postbox (to mention a few I’ve been using). I am liking eMClient better than the rest… but I also want the ability to PIN emails at the top, not just flag them.

Please add the option to PIN emails.

Is this planned for a future release? It’s so needed…

No, this is not planned.
