No function to create incident from incoming e-mail?


We're implementing the ITSM scenario on SolMan 7.1. I've followed the excellent wiki and I now get the e-mails in the inbound e-mail inbox of my Dispatcher role. However, there's no function to create an incident as a follow-up to the e-mail. I haven't seen this scenario working, so I don't know exactly what it should look like. If anybody finds a good YouTube link, I'd be happy to see it.

Anyway, I'd expect a button Create Incident or similar. There's none (see picture below). The Create functions seen in the left-hand side don't count, as they don't relate to the e-mail I've opened. I want the incident to pick up data, like sender, header, dates, from the e-mail.

Everything should be quite standard. As the wiki says,

By using the inbound e-mail inbox, service desk employees are able to create an incident or service request from an e-mail with a single click.

Now, where should I do this 'single click'?

How can I create an incident from an incoming e-mail?

I don't see the function. Also, I can't find the config spot where we define what transactions can be created out of the e-mail. Something like a PPF definition for the incoming e-mail.
