Create a task from an email

(closed account) says:
Creating a task from an email is very simple.

- Just forward your email to your "Inbox email address" (check Settings-->Info if you don't know the email address)
- When forwarding add "---" (three dashes excluding the quotes) to the email body, above everything on its own.
- send the email. You're done.

It's this simple. Now you have a task in your RTM inbox with the title as the subject line of the email and emails body as a note.

If you want a due date for the task, just add (as an example)

D: tomorrow at 10am

above the three dashes.

You can also use other options. Just check RTM help for "How to format your email".
