This information is for TaskPaper 2 which is old and outdated. TaskPaper 3 is the current version of TaskPaper. For TaskPaper 3 support please visit the support forums.

This is a modification of the "Add Current Mail to TaskPaper" script. This script takes the currently selected message in Mail to create a TaskPaper task in the Inbox project. (Note assumes that you have a project named "Inbox".) The new task name is the Mail message subject. The script then goes on to create a note under the newly created task. The note contains a link to the message as the first item and then contains a 3 sentence summary of the body of the message.
