Purpose

To teach Zimbra end-users how to create a task from an email.

Resolution

You can create a task from an email. There are 2 ways to do it, and each is simple.

When you create a task from an email, several things happen automatically:

  • The subject of the email populates the subject of the task.
  • The content of the email populates the notes of the task.
  • Any attachments to the email are added to the task.

The first option is to right-click the email and select “Create Task.”
