As far as entering dates and whatnot, I usually batch process my inbox later anyway, and would never trust voice recognition with that kind of detail.
The method blackketter describes works brilliantly -- though it does require a Mac somewhere to be online and running Mail -- and subsequently syncing to your OF database. Kind of a lot of overhead, but it'll definitely do for now.
