As others said, use org-complete.  Most of my TODOs link to a mail. 

Here's something to get you started (from my org-config.org).  Then just
call C-c c from a Gnus mail.  Add what needs to be added and C-c C-c.
It's in your agenda (assuming ~/documents/todo.org in in your Org agenda

#+begin_src org
* Capture
  Capture is used to capture things... It is the new thing

#+begin_src emacs-lisp
(setq org-default-notes-file (concat org-directory "~/documents/noter.org"))
(define-key global-map "\C-cc" 'org-capture)

It needs templates
#+begin_src emacs-lisp
  (setq org-capture-templates
        '(("t" "Todo" entry (file+headline "~/documents/todo.org" "Tasks")
           "* TODO %?\n  %i\n  %a")
          ("w" "Word" entry
           (file+headline "~/documents/words.org" "Sweet Words")
           "* %:subject %?
;;         ("j" "Journal" entry (file+datetree "~/documents/unidocs/journal.org")
;;           "* %?\nEntered on %U\n  %i\n  %a")



This is the kind of tedious nonsense up with which I will not put
