Have you ever been a part of an email conversation between several people that needed to be taken out of an 'email conversation' and just have a face to face meeting about it? Let's say you and 9 colleagues are trying to come to some decisions about the layout of a marketing piece and you just can't reach any decisions over email...a meeting is required.
With Office 2010 - it's very easy to turn an email conversation into a meeting.
With your email open, simply click the 'Meeting' button in the Outlook ribbon.
This will create a meeting request with:
1) The subject line of your email as the subject of your meeting
2) All of the people in the 'To' row will be converted to required attendees
3) All of the people in the 'CC' row will be converted to optional attendees
