I often BCC to Toodledo items that I want to track when either emailing tasks to my staff or when monitoring "Waiting For" updates.
I don't want to confuse my recipients regarding Tooldedo syntax in the subject line, so I will not include any additional Tooldedo syntax when I send, and the email ends up in the "No Folder" folder. I have a folder that I call InBox (used for processing), which I would love to set up as my default email location when no other syntax is indicated.
+1 on this one - it took me a while to find the stuff I'd emailed in as I'd set the default folder to be "inbox" I expected to find emailed items in that folder.
I submitted a feature request tonight asking for the ability to have the default folder apply to items e-mailed to Toodledo.
But reading the above post, I really think this is a UI problem. The user is presented a choice of Defaults for new tasks in Account Settings. That should apply to *all* new tasks - no matter the source - unless explicitly stated otherwise.
*At the very least* users should be told in account settings and/or the e-mail configuration screen that default settings do not apply to e-mailed items.
I'd still like to see default items apply globally, where special e-mail syntax would overwrite the defaults.
