e-mail based to-do list?

[ #12075 ]

I'm trying to get my task lists organized. Before I build my own, is there any server-based task list program that can handle updates via email as well as by the Web?

I'd like to be able to forward an email, with some lines at the top:

priority 1
due 5/12
category home
project refinance
title call the broker
est 1 hour

And create a task, with all the data, and have the rest of the email be attached.

Any suggestions? Or any suggestions for an existing web-based program that I could hack in Perl to add the email functionality?

    There's an addon for RT 2.0 to do just that, and I'd be thrilled if you felt like porting the behavior to RT3 (rather than starting from scratch on yet another todo list app) ;) http://bestpractical.com/rt/ Jesse
  • OK, I'm looking at RT.

    Questions:

    * Can I add new fields (time estimated, time taken)?

    * Is there a built-in timer interface?

    * How modifiable is it?

    * Besides the 3.0 PDF documentatino, is there anything else a prospective RT hacker should be looking at?

    My previous entry on this [perl.org]. I've got a workable alpha setup that extends the MH mail, I might get some more time this summer to robustify it.
