I use paper for my lists and would agree with Siobhan and Carolyn - I find that 2 pages is enough for me to need to rewrite the items not yet completed and start a fresh list. I often use this opportunity to check whether the actions are still relevant and are defined enough for me to complete them. If I have rewritten an action a few times, then it's a good pointer to take a closer look at why I haven't done it yet!
I also tried changing the title of the email to give me an action and using my @Action Support folder in my email but it just didn't work for me. I found that I needed to see the items on my paper list otherwise I would forget to look often enough. I know quite a few people that work with no trouble at all using the email folder contents as the trigger, so very much a personal preference thing.
Good luck with your implementation!
