How to attach an email to a new iCal event

I read this somewhere but then I lost the link:

How can I create a URL from an email in OS X Lion so I can attach the email to an iCal event?

In Outlook this is simple but I don't know how to do it in Lion

TIA

Assuming you are using Apple Mail, you can just drag and drop the email message onto iCal and it will automatically create an event for you with the URL link to the email.

thanks Saberahul

I am using Apple Mail. When I do that it says in iCal - "Show in Mail" on the URL line. I think there is a way to actually get the email to be a physical attachment in iCal.

Can anyone help?
When I drag an email from Mac Mail to create a new iCal event the URL says open in Mail. This is great when I am home but the mail attachment doesn't make the leap to my iPhone and iCal on my phone.
iCal on the phone says URL: message but there is no attachment

Any help?

Nope, all I know is what I told you before. I have no idea how to do that or even if it is possible. Sorry mate.
