ToDoist for gmail does not show the "ad mail to task" button

I just started using Todoist. We are a company using gmail for business and I have just added the "todoist for gmail" ad-on.

Alas, the button does not show in my gmail. It does appear under "settings - extensions" and is turned on. I'm working on a windows 7 machine with Google Chrome.

I am a premium user.

Hi Bob,

Unfortunately, our Gmail extension does not work if you have preview pane enabled. We'll look into improving this in the future.

I don't have the Preview Pane enabled but still the extension doesn't work- doesn't seem to recognize my login. Am I doing something wrong? (Do you need premium for this to work?) Like others have mentioned, being able to create To Dos from your emails is essential!
