How do I mark an e-mail message for followup on a specific date?

Update:10-11Source: network consolidation

I want to mark an incoming e-mail message to be followed up on a specific date/time.  When that date arrives I want a reminder to pop up on my desktop.  I can do this in Outlook, but would rather use the native Mac Mail if possible.

For some reason the Drag-and-Drop to the Calendar followed by Drag-and-Drop to Reminders does not work for me.
I found a much more elegant solution using Automater here:

Thanks to Chuck Kalish for contributing the code.  Now I can create the reminders with a single keypress, and I can also modify the code to tailor the exact text of the reminders to suit my needs.
