To create a tasklist with ability to receive mail the following steps were required.
1.Create a list based on Task, for example weeklymeeting
2. Create a list based on Announcements, for example incomming
3. In the list incomming, activate mailto support (Communications>Incomming e-mail settings>Allow list to receive e-mail)
4. In list incomming, create an associated workflow in SPD. Make it autostart when item is created.
5. Edit workflow to Create Item in weeklymeeting, copy relevant fields like Name and Body to new fields in weeklymeeting from incomming.  Then Delete item in CurrentItem.
