With the last update of To-Do across platforms we have enabled the option to see flagged emails from Outlook as Tasks in Microsoft To-Do. Simply flag an email in Outlook to create a task from it in To-Do.
You can enable this feature in Microsoft To-Do from within the App Settings.

Thank you for option to make flagged emails task, I just found out about it a couple weeks ago. It saves me time everyday.
Would like to increase usefulness of flagged email to task feature by allowing flagged email created tasks to be moved to other lists than just "flagged email"list, the only list flagged emails can be tasks on now.
For example on my "lagged emails" list now I have "flagged for fu email quote from farmer" for for my volunteer job coop. I would like to move " task created from flagged email from farmer requiring fu" under my " carrot buy" list which is under my "produce buy" group.
Note I was long time power user of the many, much more powerful features of older versions of outlook tasks. I made it work but it was far from easy. It took months of time to customize and lots of work to integrate into my work flow. It had many features 99% of users had no clue how to find, much less use. Please do not do that to "todo".
In contrast I liked Wunderlist in many ways better, especially its practical simplicity before MS bought it. It did a few things incredibly well and for most users that is all they need.
I would like the feature I requested, but not at expense of simplicity and ease of use and ease of understanding. Even a incredibly useful feature that is not easy to find, learn and use will make "todo" less useful.
Thanks to everyone on the team for what they do.
