How the mail section on the Tasks page works

  • You’ll see the total number of mail in each section.
  • You’ll see a list of the ten most recent mails in each section. To see all your mails in that section click View All.
  • Unread project mails are removed from the My Tasks page after 90 days. These mails are still available under the Mail tab, and are still marked as unread.
  • Mail is removed from the Unread lists after you have opened it, unless you mark it as unread.
  • If another To list recipient from your organization responds to a mail, it is removed from your Outstanding or Overdue list, but will remain on your Unread list.
