Gmail Filters with Todoist forwarding address: Todoist's auto-link-visiting makes this impossible
I'm trying to setup gmail filters to forward certain emails to a Todoist address, so that they will appear in my inbox.
To do this, one has to add a forward address in gmail. Then, a confirmation mail is sent to this address. As long as firstname.lastname@example.org is in Todoist's receiving whitelist, I do receive the confirmation email.
However, because Todoist auto-visits the links in the confirmation mail, the "cancel this confirmation" link is also visited, thus cancelling the confirmation of the forward address before I can even insert any validation code anywhere.
The automatic resolving of links in an email is fancy, but also debatable from my point of view, I have frequently seen it yield unexpected results and it might be a little too 'smart' for my personal taste.
Is there any way (perhaps on a different platform) to receive this single email without having the containing links automatically visited?
