Emailing task doesn't get to my list - why?

adamr says:
I'm sending the following email:

To: [my RTM email address]
Subject: Test
Body:
L:@Computer

No matter what I try, it ends up in my inbox. Why isn't it going to my @Computer list?

I've tried spelling out "List". I've tried spaces after the colin, etc..

Any ideas?

Tried that.. didn't work either.

I'm going to try creating a new list and see if that resolves it for some reason.

That didn't work either.. and the new list was named "test" (no '@' sign).

Anyone else have ideas?

Hi adamr,

One thing that may be worth checking is whether your email has a signature or a disclaimer at the end -- if so, after the tasks details you'll need to include '-end-' on a line by itself, and everything after this line will be ignored (otherwise there may be some problems processing the task details).

If you continue to experience problems, please submit an emailing tasks issue report via our support system.

Thanks!

That was it!! I was using "--end--" instead of "-end-".

Thank you!
