Simplify "email a task" email address


I appreciate the functionality to add tasks by email. However the cumbersome addresses (project.1234567@todoist.net) significantly diminishes the usefulness of this feature for me. Maybe other Todoist users have world-class memories, but I cannot keep these email addresses in my mind. Is there a way to create more intuitive email addresses (e.g. username.projectname@todoist.net)? What techniques do other Todoist users have for utilizing the "email a task" feature?

Hello Nick,

unfortunately, it's not possible to change the address format right now, but thank you for your suggestion, we appreciate it and will consider changing it in future development. You're welcome to add a request to our Votebox: http://todoist.com/Vote/

For now, please try to use your email client's address book. Most email clients should have an option to add someone to an address book and save the address this way so you could add "Todoist" (and.or the project name) and then simply pick it as a "person" you'd like to send an email to.

Best regards,
