I have been looking for a solution/workaround to get this functionality on my Mac’s Mail.app. The issue is that Apple’s Mail.app do not have the simple yet handy feature of creating a reminder out of an email, like how Outlook does.
But I did not want to get out of Apple’s ecosystem, that comprises of Mail, Reminders and iCal. This is basically a great combination.
Searching for a solution, I stumbled upon this article by Michael Kummer; How to create a Reminder from an E-Mail.
I am not that good at Apple Script. But this one is brilliant and does what I need precisely. Till apple adds this functionality out-of-box, this script will do.
As a side-note, check out his blog for more informative and interesting posts. His bio: Michael Kummer.
Thanks Michael for this detailed post.
