Calendar allows you to create an event or a task from the contents of an email message. The attributes for the email are automatically populated from the email message.
The parts of the message are assigned to various attributes of the event or task. When you create an event or task from an email message you are the organizer of the event, the To and Cc recipients are assigned as the participants of the event and they are invited when the event is created, the subject of the email is the title of the event or task and the message body is the description of the event or task.

From the Context Menu
From the Mail Toolbar
