Evolution has half of this feature already. If you rightclick on an
email and select "Follow Up" you can enter a day (and time) by which the
email needs to be followed up.
Its very important not to require a due date, and to make marking as a
task very simple (I suspect we should just replace "important" with
"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.
