Can't open emails turned into tasks


How do I retrieve or open an email after I have forwarded it as a task from outlook? Here is what it looks like in my task list:

[[outlook=000000001A1A8AD2A8A1BF4C9DB18083138FCADC07005CB07C5C7A1C6540BDE52757E168057B0000002D34440000FBB778AEFADE0540A51A9FE94898870C0021F5FBB0320000, null]]

Hello Allyson,

There are two ways of adding emails as tasks - linking them or forwarding them. The content of the task which you've mentioned suggests that you've linked it in which case, in order to open it, you'll need to use the Outlook plugin and the message will open in Outlook.

If you want to have access to the message from anywhere, please use email forwarding instead.

Details about both options can be found in this post on our blog: http://todoist.com/blog/2013/01/zero-inbox-policy-with-todoist/

Best regards,
