Can you create a calendar appointment from an email in Mail?

In Outlook you can use an email as a reminder to follow up with a particular contact or on a particular project by selecting the email and clicking on New Meeting.

This will automatically open a new appointment in the Calendar with the subject of the email as the meeting subject and the body of the email in the notes, for ease of reference.

You have to click 'Cancel Meeting' to remove the names of those included on the email so that you're just saving a calendar appointment, but the calendar will then alert you at the time you've selected so you remember to do the follow up.

I know that you can drag and drop an email into Reminders from Mail but that's splitting the task across two programmes and not as streamlined as the Outlook functionality.

Any ideas? Or can Apple make a functionality tweak? If Calendar and Mail are interlinked (and they must be because you can create events from emails received with dates / times in them) AND if you can do this between Mail and Reminders, surely it's only a small step... ?
