Modified mail rule for Omnifocus

Modified mail rule for Omnifocus omnifocus 300x84

I have recently switched from iGTD to Omnifocus since it has got a really good iPhone app and its integration (with a WebDav Server) is the best IMHO. However, I didnt like their stock mail rule as it would always treated my email footer as a new task (if I forward something or CC myself onto a mail). Furthermore, my email server does not support the +omnifocus address extension.

Therefore, I have changed the builtin mail rule a bit by

A) ignoring the allowed senders (I have an own imap mailbox for my tasks), since they are automatically turned off once you disable the stock email rule. However, you can probably modify the mail rule appropriately.

B) making the whole post a single action so that all of the mails content goes into the notes of the task.

I will modify the script a bit further (once I have time) to also add a link to the original mail (if I manage to get that working). This is one of the drawbacks of OmniFocus at the moment. This was working better in iGTD.

I noticed only recently that Aaron has moved the code repository to a new place which is one of the reasons why most of my fixes are not available in more recent stable releases. Unfortunately he forgot to tell me about it. So I will hook up with him in order to get my stuff in sync with the main codebase so that eventually my implemented new features show up in the official stable release.

I have read the book Getting Things Done.

It has been really hard to find them in Europe (at least Germany and Austria). Finally I found comparable Folders on Amazon.

These ones are exactly like the normal US manila file folders with easy to label latches. I can really recommend them.
