Automatically parse dates in Outlook e-mails to add to calender

One time I received an e-mail that had a date and time in it.  Under the date and time was a squiggley (?) line, similar to spelling/grammar check.  If I right clicked on the date/time it gave me options of adding it to my calender.  I have never figured out how to do this and it only happened the one time.

Did I dream this or is there a setting somewhere to parse dates and times for context sensative operations?

Sorry, I know what you  mean though. I had seen that when I booked a flight through one of the sites. I tried the program for the free trial, but i wasn't happy with it.
Let me know if you find a good one

Also, it's possible that you saw something like a smart tag inserted in the message. I'll keep my eyes out for that!
