Can't drag Outlook email to To-do list

Hi, buddies,

I can't drag email from Inbox to To-Do task list on the right side of the Outlook window. But I can drag email to Data navegator or create new task by double click on To-Do list panel. Who can help me? Thanks in advance.

To add an e-mail message to the To Do Bar, flag it for follow-up. Right-click the follow up flag on the right end of the item on the message list (or open the message and click Follow Up on the Ribbon).

Hi, Ben,

Thanks for your reply.

I have tried as you suggested. Yes the email has been flagged but couldn't be showed in To-Do list.

What do you mean "couldn't be showed in To-Do list"? What happens when you try? Do you get an error message?

You shouldn't need to do any dragging/dropping to add e-mails to the To-Do Bar. Just flag them for follow up.

If you've done that but the To-Do Bar still doesn't show them try starting Outlook with the /resettodobar switch. See if this helps -
