Using Postbox with OmniFocus Pro

A new OmniFocus Pro to-do can be created within Postbox by selecting some text and then:

  • selecting OmniFocus: Send to Inbox from a contextual menu

When you create a new OmniFocus Pro to-do within Postbox:

  • the message subject will become the to-do title
  • the message sender will be linked along with a link back to the original message
  • the selected text will be placed into the to-do body

The behavior of OmniFocus integration for entire messages has changed in Postbox 5. The OmniFocus: Send to Inbox command has moved from the message list contextual menu to the message body contextual menu. 

  • the message subject will become the to-do title
  • the message sender will be linked along with a link back to the original message
  • New in Postbox 5 - the message text will be placed in the to-do body
  • New in Postbox 5 - attachments will be added to the to-do

Note: This integration only works with OmniFocus Pro, as the regular version of OmniFocus does not support AppleScript.
