FTR: I don't use checklists that often.

My point was:

TODO Items will pop up in your agenda, checklists will not.
If "Archive Mail" involves some ministeps you just want to make sure you
won't forget, which you don't want to log separately, checklists are
probably a better idea. But don't overuse them; as a general rule, if a
subtask takes more than 3 minutes, I make it a first class citizen in
the org cosmos, i.e. a TODO item. Most ministeps are not worth jotting
down in the first place, having them in my agenda would clutter everything:

* TODO Return books to library [/]
** TODO Search books
** TODO Put books in bag
** TODO Unlock bike
** TODO Drive to library

D'oh. :) But there are cases where it is worth it.

* TODO Meeting Dr. XY
  You'll need:
  - [ ] Curriculum Vitae
  - [ ] Document A 
  - [ ] Document B
  - [ ] Document C 
  - [ ] Document D 
  - [ ] Document E 
  - [ ] Document F 
  - [ ] Document G

Forgetting just one document will bust the whole meeting. But I don't need
them in my agenda.
