Removing E-Mail subject from task, while maintaining link

I have noticed if I add an e-mail to a task, and I try to remove the subject of the e-mail from the task (due to length or poor wording) that I actually lose the link to the email all together.

This is proving to be a big issue w/ how I've been using TD.

Is there a good solution, or is TD working on this?

Hi Norman,

Which one of our plugins are you using? Gmail, Outlook, etc? Are you emailing/forwarding the email to Todoist?

Which browser are you using if it's one of our plugins?

I was using the chrome plugin, and I think it actually stemmed from having some old tasks still in the Q which were stored in the old fashion before a few updates of the Chrome plugin.

After attempting to take a JingCast of it going wrong.....I see now that it operates a little more gracefully.

As a side note, is it possible to follow the e-mail links on a mobile device yet and it happens to be I haven't figured out the magical format for that either?

These links do not work on mobile devices yet, they need to be used where they were created.
