  • Hi,

    According to my research, this may be a known limitation in Outlook. For your reference: 

    “The Calendar folder cannot be found” or “The Tasks folder cannot be found” error when you use Quick Steps in Outlook

    As a workaround, you can try the method below:

    Click the Move icon in the middle top section. Then you have the choice to select "Tasks". Then click and your email is converted(moved) to a task and deleted from the inbox. This procedure also works for moving emails to your calendar and  is very similar to using Quick Step.

    Hope this can be helpful.

    Regards,
