Currently I track how much money I owe people by emailing myself. Is there a web application for simplifying this with decent email support - ie. I can email it who I owe, how much and what for and which will let me know if it couldn't understand the email?

since you keep forgetting, you still owe me $1750.88 ;-) – scunliffe Jul 3 '10 at 0:28

Billmonk definitely. It sends emails whenever a new bill is shared among users, you can shuffle debts when many people owe money to others in the same group. It supports receiving instructions via SMS emails (SMS sent to an email address), but I'm not sure if a regular email would work though.

Update: Billmonk regularly fails to work correctly (repeating bills haven't worked for months now) and I wouldn't recommend people to use it anymore until everything is fixed.

I tried contacting support, don't have any info back yet as to whether regular emails work – Casebash Jul 23 '10 at 11:39
Actually, it does appear to handle email. Just a bit slow sometimes – Casebash Aug 5 '10 at 2:30

What about using something like Evernote and just email it the text you want. It won't parse it for you or store it in special fields... but if use a convention such as "John owes me $5 for lunch", you could easily enter a search term like intitle:"John owes" to find all those notes. They also give you an @evernote.com email address which allows you to create notes via email.

That could work (I do have an Evernote account), but I was curious as to whether there were any special tools – Casebash Jul 3 '10 at 0:26

I looked through the sites, but I couldn't find any way of submitting bills via email. – Casebash Jul 21 '10 at 9:22
added Texthog, which may do what you are looking for – Josh Newman Jul 21 '10 at 18:20
