iPhone: mailing stuff to Tinderbox

We're trying a new Tinderbox feature. What happens if you give a Tinderbox document its own email mailbox?

One thing that happens is that I can email notes from my iPhone right to my Projects database. Interesting....

Update: the overnight returns from the beta team were certainly encouraging!

People have lots of unused mailboxes. For example, a PairLight web hosting account that is "perfect for hobby or project sites" comes with 50 mailboxes (and costs about $8/month). Eastgate is entitled to hundreds of mailboxes we never use. So there's no shortage of mailboxes.

The iPhone connection is one obvious application. Another is communication between Tinderbox documents — letting one Tinderbox document email another! Your novel could email your ToDo list directly
