Select the email from your Inbox and then drag it over the folder in your Outlook Navigation Pane that contains items of the type you would like to create. For example, if you want to create a task item, drag the email to your Tasks folder or the Tasks button in your Navigation Pane (see thumbnail below).
The new Outlook item will now open with your email included in the body text (see thumbnail below).
This technique works for Contacts (although there are better tools such as Anagram for populating contact records from email text), Appointments, Tasks, Notes, and Journal Entries.
