Couple of Features when Converting Email to Task

The reason for these requests are I use 4 folders in order to keep my inbox empty. I use a combination of GTD and MYN. Folder 1 is Someday/ Maybe for emails that I may want to do in the future. Folder 2 is Reference for any emails that I need to keep. Temp Holding are for any emails that I am waiting on a Response. Todo is for items that I turn into Tasks.

1) I wish when I create a task from an email then it will file the email for me. In the setting I could set the folder I want it filed to. I would like it to automatically go into Todo.

2) I wish when I complete a task that was created from a email then I would like it to ask me if I want to delete the email or file it. If I want to file it I want it to automatically go into Reference.

3) I wish that after sending an email it will prompt me if I want to create a follow up message for it. I always forget to use that feature. Then If I tell it to create a follow up message it should automatically file the email and all emails in that thread in the Temp Holding folder.

Thanks for the suggestions. As you are probably aware, Original Message does some of what you ask - filing or deleting the original message as a reply, task or appointment is created. However, there is not a way to specify permanent folders for these actions. I have added your suggestions to our list.
