How to optimize the Tasks function in Outlook 2007 when RTM/gtasks are off the table?

I'm in a office full of heavy Outlook users who are my co-workers/supervisors/etc. In that context, it ends up creating a lot of extra steps to use Remember the Milk, even if it's a better system because it's not integrated with my email, and I can't share/transfer with others at work.
I get a ton of tasks via email, but there are also manually entered ones. I haven't really made friends with a system in Outlook, because I'd been using RTM up to this point.
I'm doing a variety of grant funding admin, event planning, supervision, and research tasks, as well as a firehose of email.
Any tips/tricks for moving beyond the simple red flag? Things I liked in RTM the ease of use of the interface via quick add, the iphone app, the flexibility about reminders and repeats.
Things I didn't master in RTM and would love to have are sets of tasks that can be re-created/copied (like for event planning deadlines).
Also welcome would be general ways you conceptualize large task lists with entries that vary widely in terms of importance and time to complete.
