Hi Alan,

You can do this several ways.

1. Forwarding task directly to your inbox
You can forward emails directly to any project in your Todoist account. You can refer to this link for more details http://todoist.com/Help/viewEmailTasks?from_premium=1.

2. Using plug-ins for mail clients
If you are using Thunderbird or Postbox as your mail client, you can install our plug-ins and create tasks directly from your emails. Refer to the links below for more details about the plug-ins:

Thunderbird http://todoist.com/thunderbird
Postbox http://todoist.com/postbox

3. Browser extensions
Assuming you are using Gmail for your emails, you can use our Chrome or Firefox extensions to create emails as task. Check this link for more info http://todoist.com/gmail.

Let me know if you have any follow-up question.

Regards,

Clyde

No plugin for Mac Mail or Outlook 2011 for Mac?

Hi Dean,

That is correct. Unfortunately, we don't have plug-ins for the email clients that you mentioned yet.

I have a problem when forwarding mail. The body is not included as a note to the task. In some cases I get one line but nothing else.

Hi Stefan,

Sorry for the inconvenience. Can you please send me an example email at clyde@doist.io? We are aware of the issue and need your example email so I can pass it to our developers.

Best Regards,

Clyde

Hi.
I will forward an example. The one I send you looks like this in Todoist (see imaget). It “breaks” when the forwarded message begins.

This is an example of forwarded mail.

Hi Stefan,

Did you forward an email to me already? I just checked and I don't have it in my inbox yet. As I mentioned, I need the email so I can save it and pass it to our devs so they can take a look at it.

Regards,

Clyde

I forwarded a mail yesteray. Will do again! Seems like the problem is permanent for all e-mails I forward to Totoist.

Hi.
Have you looked at the problem? I can still not get the body of forwarded mail in TD.
