Turning an Email into a To-Do Item

If you’re anything like me, many of the items on your to-do list are based on emails. Your boss wants you to do this, your mom says you should remember that, you really need to call your girlfriend. Now you can create a new to-do right in Mail, based on the content of an email message, and it’s automatically added to iCal as well as being accessible in Mail.
