    I do not know of a shortcut to perform this, but if you open the e-mail, select File, Copy to Folder, then choose Tasks from the list, it attaches the original e-mail msg with attachments.

    Re: Copy email in a task folder (2003)

    I use Outlook 2002. If I create a new task and drag a message from the Inbox and drop it on the task, the attachments internal to the message are retained (I tried a few different types, such as another e-mail message, a vCard and a GIF). What is the other way to do it that loses the attachment's attachments?

    Using the Autocreate feature... that is dragging the item onto a Task folder without have a new task open. It eliminates the attachments in the e-mail item... your way of doing this works great too...
