I know I can email a new task to a project by clicking settings, but can I email myself a new project by emailing to a general adress dedicated to me? that would be an extremely helpful feature.
you cannot create a new project by email; you always have to send tasks to an existing one. The "general address" you talk about would be the email address of the "Inbox" project. But you would then still have to distribute the emailed tasks to their actual projects frm within a Todoist app or plugin.
If that helps, you can add labels to tasks that you email yourself.
