I have recently set up a few rules in outlook. However, I got stuck when trying to find a way to get items in my todo list automatically when I send mails.
I am doing this because I want to organize all my tasks in 1 place, and 'waiting/following up' is also a common task.
What have I tried
I tried basically all rules that seemed remotely relevant. I believe that I managed to create a task, but it did not show up on my todo list. Searching online I did not manage to find anything helpfull either.
My workaround now is to use a rule that places a copy the relevant messages (based on a keyword that occurs in the mail) in a special folder. Afterwards I flag them manually, and then they appear in my todo list. However, I don't like this solution because of the manual intervention that is required.
How can I automatically create an item in the todo list when I send certain emails?
If possible, I would prefer a point-and-click solution over a customized VBA macro. A solution that would not need to create multiple instances of the mail would be a plus, but is not required.
