How do I get the Gmail web client to display the 'High' importance flag? Is it a setting that needs tweaking?

'High importance flag' is not something that's defined in the email standard. – fretje Feb 10 '11 at 12:39
@fretje I knew that.. Just didn't know where to link.. so I'll include that in my answer! – Lipis Feb 10 '11 at 16:36

GMail doesn't support these flags, so there is no way to tweak it somehow.

Please note that High Importance Flag is something that is not defined in Internet Message Format (thanks @fretje for the link).
