Its very important not to require a due date, and to make marking as

"task", or perhaps just put all important messages in the task list).
Most tasks don't have due dates, per se, they are just reminders.
The thing that makes this suck most (to me, a representative
nontechnical user - ha) in Evo today is that the calendar/todo is modal
with email. The todo list and calendar should be in some way
ever-present, and when getting a todo item or event via mail I should be
able to add it without closing the mail.
The little calendar drop-down on the clock might be much more useful if
it were "events and todo items for today" for example, and when marking
an email as a todo it could sort of fly up to that list or something.
When an event is coming up the clock could sort of throb and make a
chime noise or something. I don't know. Maybe it should be a dedicated
gizmo and not a clock. Anyway, you get the general idea, calendar/todo
are pesky as a separate app, they are more like a structure for your day
that should be always available whatever you are working on.
