After installing Mountain Lion, I was looking for an easy way to convert the e-mails I receive into reminders to act on later. After trying in vain in Mail (right clicks, menus, etc.) I found the solution is simple. Just drag an e-mail from Mail to Reminders and a new Reminder is automatically created with the subject of the e-mail as title and a link to the e-mail in the notes.

[kirkmc adds: To be honest, I expected there to be a clearer way to do this: a toolbar button in Mail, or a contextual menu item. I think a lot of people - like me - use their inbox as a to-do list. Being able to add them to the Reminders app can be very useful.]
