In addition to dragging e-mail messages to move them from one folder to another. You can also drag the e-mail messages to create other items based on them. So why would you do that? Well, I just got it in an e-mail here about IP security and VPN and I want to remember to do something about that. So, I'd like to, say, put an entry in my calendar to remember to call this fellow, so I can drag and drop the e-mail message into my Calendar. It copies the e-mail address here, and what we're doing is creating a calendar entry. We're creating it for today; I'm just going to Save & Close quickly here, so we can go into the Calendar and you can see, here is the name of e-mail, so this is the calendar entry I just created by dragging and dropping that e-mail.
Now also note, the original e- mail is still here in my Inbox. So when you drag an e-mail into another item on the Task pane, and drop it, just creates another item based on that e-mail, but does not delete or move the original e-mail. So I can create a contact for that person by dragging it to the Contact e-mail. It fills in the information it has, and I could do the rest here also. In the Notes it puts the text of the e-mail message itself. Just going to Save & Close that. I can do the same thing with the Task to create Task based on that, and I can even just drag it and put it in the Notes to create a note.
So extra functionality here to drag your e-mail messages and drop them to other places on the Task list to create other items based on that e-mail.
