Adding Todoist Projects as Frowarding email addresses in GMAIL


1) Get project email from Todoist (for any project).
2) Add it as a GMAIL forwarding address in GMAIL.
3) A confirmation is sent to Todoist as a project task.
4) Copy the confirmation code from the project task in Todoist.
5) Paste the confirmation code from Todoist into the verify box in GMAIL.
6) An error pops up in GMAIL that says, "You do not have the forwarding address project.xxxxx.xxxxxxx@todoist.net".

I have the same error popping up in Gmail when I paste the confirmation code in Gmail. The link from the email does not work as well - I get a server error page with "Numeric code: 124"

I'm having the same issue as Jay Perry.

I also have @goole.com added to as an email address allowed to send messages to Todoist.

Any help would be appreciated!

Any news on this?

Sending emails direct to Todoist to create tasks is great feature and an excellent way of keeping your inbox tidy.

Hi Andrew,

Sadly, we don't have any updates from our developers yet. I've added you the list of users to update once a fix is available. Really sorry for the inconvenience.
