Hello everyone,

I have the following question:

Why can't I directly - per drag and drop - insert an email from outlook into Excel?

So what I want to do is: Move the email from my outlook inbox into Excel and have it there as an Email icon that is also linked to the very same email in my inbox. So I can - for example - add this into my excel todo list and then work through the mails.

 

FUNNIEST THING: If I instead go to word to drag and drop the email into word, I get exactly what I want. Even funnier: If I then move the linked icon from word into Excel, it works perfectly! Exactly what I want. I can then even delete the "detour" word document. It still works.

 

Why can't that work directly?
