IssueBurner: Email Based Task Management & Collaboration Tool

One use we put emails to is assigning tasks to others. But emails do not help us track the progress of those tasks we are collaborating on. IssueBurner has come up with a solution for this.

IssueBurner is a free to use email task management and collaboration service that lets you collaborate on tasks via emailing. Recognizing that most people use emailing to communicate with project collaborators, the site makes it greatly convenient to add entries to one’s tasks list.

All you have to do is add an additional address to the email recipients while sending an email: Doing so adds the issue to the sender’s and recipient’s Issue Burner accounts. If the recipient does not have an Issue Burner account yet, they can create one through their email and find the task waiting for them in their list.
