    Hey Andrew,
     
    Is there anything within the email that determines if it's high importance? How do you currently mark these emails as high importance when they come in? 
     
    You could potentially set up a trigger that will look at the comment text of a ticket. Otherwise if any email from a specific user is considered high importance, then you could tag the user profile which will in return tag the tickets they generate. 
     
    If you go down that route, you could create a trigger that sets the priority based on a tag within the tickets.
     
    Let me know if this isn't what you're looking for!

    Brett, 
    I apologize I should have been more specific in this comment. High importance as in the ability in Outlook or O365 to select a priority for the email you are sending. I believe this marks something in the email header but I'm not an expert on email. Below is a screenshot of what I'm talking about.

    Hi Andrew, 
     
    Thank you for the additional context. This functionality is an in-product feature of Outlook and this is not rendered in Zendesk when it forwards an email and is converted as a ticket in your Zendesk. As Brett mentioned, we need to create triggers to put priority in your tickets using conditions and identifiers like tags, organization name, and subject. If there is one email address so far that is forwarding all emails then we need to look for identifiers in the emails that will come in that will help the trigger to route and apply priorities to tickets. 
     
    However, if there are multiple emails then you can set a ticket priority based on the incoming support address, and use the priority to move a ticket to the top of the queue. Or use manual triaging. 
     
    To get more information, you can check this guide that caters to ticket routing - Routing options for incoming tickets.
     
    We hope this helps!
