If you have enabled the ‘Flagged email’ option from settings in To Do, then any email you flag in Outlook will show up under the ‘Flagged email’ smartlist.
From the Outlook web app, you can create a task out of an email by right-clicking —> Advanced actions —> Create task. You can also select a message in the body of an email and create a task out of it.

In the desktop Outlook app, this option puts a flagged email into the desktop To Do app. This is great.
HOWEVER.... In the desktop To Do app, clicking on the flagged email entry opens the flagged email in the WEB Outlook client, which I almost never use, and is very slow by comparison to the desktop Outlook app.
If the desktop app is present on the same PC or Mac as the desktop To Do app, surely clicking on the flagged email can open it in the desktop Outlook app?
