Combining multiple messages into a single task

Status

I get emails.

I often start a new task by drag/drop the email to the task bar. I can then delete the email if i want, because the email text is included in the task.

I then recieve other emails, some of which pertain to existing Tasks.

I want to add them or tie them or combine them with the same task. Ideally I'd like to have the email's text put iinto the task along with the original or notes that i've added to the task.

Any way to do this other than 'catagories' or 'creating new folders in email ?

Is there a reason why you aren't editing the existing task or do i missunderstand what you are trying to do? You can drag (or use insert) to add the later messages to the task as attachments.
 
Arrg.. yes i see that now.. not quite what i wanted but it will do.

I wanted it to SIMPLY add the text of a dropped email to the text of the task, but i see the advantages of not doing that as well.

I'm also going to try the "projects" function of Outlook Business Contract Manager; any opinions on that?

thanks!

You could always copy and paste the text... but its a few more steps.

If you need a CRM, its fine - its not perfect, but its free and works well for small groups or businesses.
