When you receive an email message which contains task information that needs you to follow up in a certain date, you need to take some notes about the task information or set a task with the message details in outlook. Why not directly turn this email message into task in Outlook? When the task date arrives, you can read the whole message information and finish the tasks one by one. Is that a useful method?

Nice features but It's a shame that you have to use both outlook mail and outlook as your task management to use it. With the Beesy task manager, you can do it just sending a mail to a specific address mail and a task with the email content attached will appears in the Beesy app.
