To-Dos in Mail

While we’re in Mail, let’s talk about another great new feature: the ability to create To-Do list items right from within Mail.

I’ll admit it: at first I thought Mail was a silly place to put a feature like this. But Apple thought it out better than I did—which shouldn’t surprise you—and came up with a fully integrated solution and great interface, making the feature practical and easy to use.

You can create an individual To-Do item, build a To-Do list in a Mail note (another new feature), or turn selected text in an e-mail message into a To-Do item attached to that message. No matter how you create a To-Do item, it’s automatically added to iCal, so your calendar will include all the things you need to do.
