Hi Clyde

Thanks for your sorry response.

I've checked link and have downloaded postbox API by can't seem to get it to work.

Any suggestions?

Also, I use Dispatch is there a way to integrate that within Todist?

Thanks again for your help.

Hi Marc,

Can you tell me exactly what you are trying to do? I get that you're trying to 4 different things:

1. Forward emails to a specific project in your Todoist account
2. Use the Postbox plug-in
3. Use the API to work with Postbox
4. Use Todoist in conjunction with Dispatch

For issue 1, the link that I shared to you should show you how to do it.

For the issue 2, did you download the plug-in form this link: http://todoist.com/postbox. If you encountered issues, what exact problem did you get?

If you're trying to integrate the API with Postbox (3rd issue), what error do you get when you use it?

Lastly (issue 4), it looks like they have integrated it directly with version 2.1. They should now have an option to "Send to Todoist".

If I'm missing something, please let me know so I can assist you with it. :-)


Regards,
Clyde

Hi Marc,

When you installed the Postbox plug-in, did you encounter any errors? Have you tried relaunching Postbox?

The option should only be available in the iOS app. Are you using version 2.1?

Marc,

So there were no errors when you installed it? Have you tried re-installing it and it still didn't work?

Hi Marc,

How did you install the plug-in? Did you follow the instruction from the Postbox website? (Refer to the steps below)

1. Download and save the add-on to your hard drive. (Firefox users, be sure to right-click the download link, then select "Save Link As..." from the contextual menu.)

2. In Postbox, go to Tools | Add-ons.

3. Click the Install button and select the file you downloaded and click "OK".
