Remember the Milk by email

When you signup for Remember The Milk, you are assigned a unique email address. Emails sent to this special address are automatically converted into tasks and appear in your Inbox. (You will find this address in your 'welcome' email and in the 'Settings' section.)

How to format your email

The subject should be the task name.

The body can include any of the following (or can be empty):

Priority: 1 or P: 1

Due: Monday at 9am or D: Monday at 9am

Repeat: Every Week or R: Every Week

Estimate: 2 hours or E: 2 hours

Tags: report coffee or S: report coffee

Location: Home or O: Home

URL: http://www.rememberthemilk.com/ or U: http://www.rememberthemilk.com/

By default, your task will appear in your Inbox. If you want the task to appear in a different list, you can do so with the following:

List: Work or L: Work

Optionally, if you're unable to specify the subject of your email, you can use the following to specify the task name:

Task: Weekly work meeting or T: Weekly work meeting

Notes can be included at the bottom of the email, but need to be separated with '—-' (three hyphens).

If your email automatically contains a signature or disclaimer that you'd like to prevent being converted into a note, you can include '-end-' on a line by itself, and everything after this line will be ignored.

Example email

Subject: Weekly work meeting
To: [Your Remember The Milk email address]

Priority: 1
Due: Monday at 9am
Repeat: Every Week
Estimate: 2 hours
