Is is possible to add an opened email (sepeate dialog) as a task?
The add email as task seems to work off the current selection in outlook, but I may an email open as a result of doing a search, or in the advanced find window, so it is not the current selection. Without a toolbar button to "send to todoist" I wonder if there is any other way to add my opened email to todoist.
Unfortunately, it's not possible to add an opened message to Todoist.
If the messages you want to add don't have to be linked and you would prefer to see the entire message as a task note and make it accessible from every platform, you could try to send/forward emails directly to Todoist projects.
