I see this problems from time to time as well, using autosync. Similar situations/outcomes to the others. I can't see a pattern to it. However, I am stuck on a Edge network at my office, which may explain it for me. I will test manual sync.

I created a similar workflow from my office PC using VBA in Outlook 2007 & Toodledo's email import feature. See post here: Click here for post

Now I am looking for a way to do this in Apple Mail "watch a folder" for my home/remote Mac machines. I looked at Apple Mail rules & Automator actions but have had no luck so far. Any clever folks out there figure a way to do something like this?

I am using a GTD style task system and I wanted a way to add emails I have a Next Action on from Outlook 2007 into Toodledo. Found VBA Macros would help me do that. Please feel free to use this in your workflow.

1- Put this code in Tools > Macros > Visual Basic Editor. Expand the tree Microsoft Office Outlook and doubleclick ThisOutlookSession. Copy the code here.
2- Edit CAP fields to match your FOLDER_NAME_HERE, YOURSECRETEMAIL.XXXXXX, etc. You can also edit "! *Next Actions @Work" per Toodledo's Email Import special syntax rules to allow for auto filing upon import.
3- Save. Then close VBA Editor and Outlook.
4- Reopen Outlook and test. When you drag/drop an email in the said folder you should get a confirm/OK prompt.

1- The folder you are applying this macro to must be inside the Inbox in your Outlook folders. You can probably customize this if you know some VBA, but this was how my workflow was setup.
2- Only tested on Outlook 2007.
3- Modified script found at

I'm happy to help if anyone is having any problems. Happy Toodledo-ing.
