Clicking the Quickflag icon on an already flagged e-mail should remove the flag  

: Notes Client / follow-up flag
: follow-up, flag
Mathieu Pape7406 - 04 2014 / (0)

When you click on the flag icon (aka follow-up) it sets a default flag. Clicking a second time should IMHO remove it. Currently it asks if you want to update it. Removing would work much faster in handling the flags.
