I have an extensive set of personal Tasks organized in GTD fashion that I want to migrate off of my corporate exchange account. Is there a good, free alternative out there? I was thinking I could add an account from another service into Outlook and simply drag/drop my GTD folder over there to copy it. The problem is I hanen't seen free services that support Outlook Tasks fully. For example, I can easily add my gmail account to Outlook but it doesn't support Task folders. Also, I often use Tasks as "containers" where I'll drag/drop an email message into one and it saves sort of like an attachment within the Task. It would be nice if the replacement service preserved this same Task capability.

There is an Outlook add-on for two-way synchronization of tasks with the Remember the Milk app.

Not sure how sophisticated are the features you're using with your tasks, but did you try using a "Hotmail/window live" account instead?

Yes, I tried adding a Windows Live account but those don't support Tasks either. – Skeets Aug 10 '11 at 18:16
