I've played with this some more.
If you choose the Inbox folder and select Flagged for Follow up, you can then specify date options under Date.
Unfortunately this seems a little erratic in operation. Emails flagged as Today seem to show correctly if Today is selected in the query; however ones flagged as Tomorrow don't seem to show up if Tomorrow is selected, though they will appear if This Week is selected.
On the other hand, if the Custom option is chosen you can select relative dates, ie, either the next or last x number of days or a fixed date range. The relative dates also gave me some strange results - bizarrely, if I selected the next 1 days, the query gave me an email dated to be followed up today and one that was dated the day after tomorrow - but not one that was dated tomorrow!
Selecting the next 3 days did however give me all three. Only the fixed range when set to tomorrow's date (see example below) gave me the precise answer. I'm not sure why this is happening or if this is a weird anomaly, but perhaps someone who uses this feature more often can advise.
In the meantime, in summary based on my experience, it is possible to select emails that are flagged to be followed up using the date field, but this feature seems to work reliably only if you select a range - either one of the present options like This Week, or a custom range of a few days - or if you use a fixed range.
