I think I heard that a while ago. About last year, so I don't think it's new, but I may be mistaken.

To-dos are one thing we really do need.

It looks like Gmail's down. Hopefully there adding some new features, like a To-Do list :)

"ToDos" is invalid, but "To Do" IS valid...

I always consider e-mails and todo's to be similar. They could/should implement the system of os-x, there you can select a piece of text in an e-mail and make a task out of it.

Voicemail is simpl because you can send voice mails with google talk...

The word "todos" in portuguese means "all", that could be the problem. I have the same problem with label "arquivo".

actually, the reason why "ToDos" is blocked is because the word "todos", like "inbox", already exists in the Gmail navigation. for those who don't know, word is spanish, meaning "all"; if you change your gmail acount to spanish, "all mail" becomes "Todos los mensajes". todos, and therefore ToDos (or tOdOs, for that matter) is blocked for the same reason that "chats" is.

"ToDo's" works as well...

I find it interesting that Google opted to localize these "system" strings. (Although I guess it's because they're visible when searching for e.g. [label:todos] instead of just being hidden system constants...)

The good way to handle this is to use GTDGmail. It gives lots of neat ways to handle tasks and projects. See it at:

Point is correct.

Todo list is available as a google gadget already.

May be todos means something in some other languages.

ToDo List integrated with GMail... That would be lovely!

I don't use often – but I'm addicted to the ToDo gadged which is available only on Google Personalized Homepage :-(That means I have to have another Opera tab opened...

New feature for me yesterday was offline chat delivery in Gmail Chat. Message is "<name> is offline and can't receive messages right now." if you try to initiate chat with someone who is currently offline, and "<name> is offline. Messages sent now when they sign back in" (or something like that) if the person you are chatting with goes offline.

"ToDos" in spanish means "all" or "everything", but for Gmail to default label names to one language is just plain wrong. I just tested "hacer" & "lio" which means "to-do" (in spanish) and the label was valid but it will not accept "to-do" in english nor spanish?!?!wtf!?! ... so i say the rumor on the "To-Do" List feature may still hold true and we'll just have to wait and see until it gets implemented. After all, a great email service like Gmail should have come with To-Do List since the beginning.

mrbene, my friend also pointed that out to me yesterday. I remember when GT first went live, that didn't work. Now it works and they can also get the messages when they sign into the Jabber server.
