Task? Meeting? Email? Not sure yet? Try a Note. Notes, once created, can be conveniently dragged to the Mail, Calendar, Task, or even the Contact Navigation pane button to create a new item without copying and pasting any content.
Reveal Notes in the Navigation pane by stretching the separator above Mail. If you still don’t see it, click on the arrow at the bottom right of the Navigation Pane. Then, from Add or Remove Buttons, choose Notes.
Once in Notes, simply double-click in the main area and start typing. Later, when you decide where to place it, just drag and drop it.
