    What do the coloured icons in WLM mean?

    This going to sound a bit sad, but ... I upgraded from Outlook Express to
    Windows Live Mail a few days ago. I notice that a few of my messages have a
    pink or green arrow across the envelope icon when displayed in the list. I
    have no idea what that indicates: there's nothing about it in WLM Help, and
    an hour's googling hasn't helped.

    I already figured out what red flags mean & how to get rid of them - no
    thanks to WLM Help - but these pink & green marks have me stumped. Can
    someone explain? and perhaps point to a comprehensively useful source of info
    on WLM (this forum is excellent but no-one seems to have raised this before).

    Thanks a lot! Just one of those small but annoying things!

    Pink pointing < thataway = You replied.

    Green pointing > thataway = You Forwarded it.
