We have previously looked at transforming an Outlook e-mail into a task in our To-Do list and then making that into a Calendar appointment as good time management. When we do that the e-mail is still there as well as being a task.

If we no longer need to keep the e-mail, we can instead move it into our Task folder as an attachment. To do so, right-click on the e-mail in the Inbox, click Move to Folder. The Move Items dialog box will be displayed. Click Tasks and click OK. The Task dialog box for this new task will open with the e-mail as an attachment. Double-clicking on the attachment will open the original e-mail, but it will no longer be in your Inbox. Type in any additional information such as the date by which the task needs to be completed and click Save and Close
