  • I don't think anyone's going mad!

    Looks like there *is* (or soon will be) IMAP access in Hiveminder: see, for example, []

    It's a "pro" feature, but even as a pro user I can't find much about it: like, say, what IMAP server to use!

    • Thud... how about "" you fool? I had tried and friends, but the simple one slipped through unscathed...

      OK, the basics are in place, now to play a little.

        Back for the last time...

        OK, the 20 minute tour is complete. It works really well if you're happy to only see your todo items (ie there doesn't appear to be any interface to those items that you've completed, have delayed/pushed forward, and so forth). You can simply drag and drop messages from the "inbox" to "Completed" when they're done, or "Hide for" to delay them for a certain period (there are stacks of Actions hidden inside subfolders). In essence most of the folders simply implement an action on the item you drag onto them. They don't "contain" the message once dragged, they just operate on its status.

        Everything updates through all the different Hiveminder interfaces (IM, IMAP, Web, etc) in real time, and you can take the IMAP account off line (as long as it's set up to store all messages on your local machine) in order to update status while offline.

        In short: it's a bare-bones front end to your todo list. There are other lumps of functionality available in there (Groups/Braindump mailboxes) but I don't use either of those much.
