I did not know that this could be done, but now I've implemented it and it's blowing my mind. This may enable me to fix the Mail/Task disconnect which I've wrestled with for years.
I use Mail for many things, and Thunderbird for other things. I see that in Thunderbird, "OmniFocus: Send to InBox" is in the Services menu, but it's tantalizingly greyed-out, and when I go to Clippings in the OmniFocus Preferences, I can't figure out how to configure Thunderbird.
Can anyone help?
