Message w/ attachment into task item (& vice-versa)

Posted on 2004-11-02
Last Modified: 2010-04-08
I have an XP Client running Outlook 2003.  He has been able to drag a message to his task list folder - creating the message into a task item.  And he has also forwarded task items as messages.  Through this process, is there a way to keep the attachments.  If a message is received w/ an attachment and he wants to turn it into a task item.  How can he keep the attachment w/ it.
And if he has a task item w/ an attachment and he forwards it - how can he keep the attachment in the new message?

Any tips or tricks are appreciated.  Thanks!

    Yes, that is a great use of the integration of Outlook. If you right mouse click and choose "move to folder" instead of dragging, you will find the attachment included in the task. Now you can forward the task, as well, and it will include the attachment.
    Let me know how you make out!
