1. Open Outlook and go to your Inbox.

2. Find an email that you wish to create a Task, Appointment or Contact from.

3. Drag and Drop the email onto the desired icon at the bottom of the Navigation Pane on the left side of the application.

The icons will either be large and labled:

or small and icon-only:

You want to drag and drop the email onto the desired icon (Tasks, Calendar, or Contacts).

4. Dropping the email on the Tasks icon will fill in the Subject of the Task with the subject from the email. The email itself will be placed in the body of the task for easy reference. Simply add a Start date and Due date, add a reminder and set a Priority and save the Task.

Dropping the email on the Calendar icon will fill in the Subject of the appointment with the subject from the email. The email itself will be placed in the body of the appointment for easy reference. Add a Start time and End time for the appointment and save.

Dropping the email on the Contacts icon will fill in the Full Name and email address of the person that sent the email. The email itself will be included in the Notes for that contact. Add any additional information and save the new contact.
