Send, receive and more with E-Mail and Torch

From any email client, send (or forward) an e-mail to your Torch account

From any email client, send (or forward) an e-mail to your Torch account




Torch creates a message and puts it in the right project


The details:
You can send or forward any email to message+SUBDOMAIN@mytorch.net and create a message. If you want to put it in a particular project, just type in part of the project's name (substituting spaces with a "_"). Torch can even auto associate the message based on the "to" and "from" addresses if you choose not to specify the project explicitly. You also have the option to group e-mails of the same message thread (this is a setting under account).

Your subdomain is the first part (before the first period) of the web address you use to login to your Torch account. So, for instance, the company above would sign in to their Torch account at http://creativearc.mytorch.net/. Thus their subdomain would be creativearc.
You send the message via e-mail when you create it





If you reply to the e-mail, your feedback will show up as a comment



Commands can be included in the body of e-mail messages to perform advanced actions. Each command must be on its own line.
