MeisterTask for Gmail is a free add-on that turns your emails into tasks at the click of a button. Once installed, the add-on lives in your Gmail inbox, where you can activate it whenever you need.
The subject line of the forwarded email will be turned into the task title, while the body of the email will be added to the task in the form of notes. You can modify both right inside the add-on if you like.
