OK. I did not think that mattered much, but that's no problem.

I almost never mix many dates, but this comes from the following "need": I
capture emails I have to respond to, and

- I want the original date to be saved, and
- add my SCHEDULED timestamp onto it.

This is done with the following template (in which I just inversed the two
lines containing dates):

#+begin_src emacs-lisp
                  ("m" "Mail" entry
                   (file+headline ,org-default-notes-file "Tasks")
                   "* TODO %:subject%? (from %:fromname) :mail:


>From %a"
                   :empty-lines 1 :immediate-finish)

You'll tell me that I could use PROPERTIES as well, but I think I'd loose the
ability to sort the tasks tree based on the inactive dates.

Best regards,
