RTM and email reminders from banks

crichtma says:
I currently get emails from utilities/banks to remind me to pay my bill. What would be nice is to get these email to tasks in RTM.

I can do something with a Linux box, some python, and procmail. What I was wondering if there was a solution for this I'm missing.

You can have your system automatically forward them to your RTM inbox where tasks will be created for them;

Really? And how do you get the utility company or bank to format the message so that RTM will pause it correctly when it is received?

I'd think a better solution would be to use gmail, and the RTM gmail extension. Then you could simply star or label the email message to send it to RTM.

I'm not sure where you're getting your email from. If you're using a client, I don't have much of help.

But, for you or others looking into this that use a browser for email, you could use QuickAdd to just highlight the date, and then click on the button in the toolbar.

You can forward into tasks, and the hyphen after the spaces for the forwarded message become the note. Print out the email formatting tips too. I like sending my bills to the task inbox like you want to do and it works fine.
