I am doing the functionality of Issue Creation by email using rake task method

i am executing the following rake task

rake redmine:email:receive_imap RAILS_ENV="production" host=mail.ohum.org port=993 ssl=1 username=myusername password=mypassword project=charityportal1 tracker=Tasks status=Open Priority=Critical allow_override=project,status,tracker,priority

Here i am able to pass everything,project idenifier,status,tracker and priority .The Email's subject will be stored as issue subject,email description is stored as issue description.Everything is ok

Is it possible to Give the Project id in Email SUBJECT LIKE SO that the value 1 will be retrieved from email subject and issue will be created on passed project id

I think while project_id cann't be set from subject line, but current Redmine takes project_id from within the body of the email. does that serve the purpose?

Although the current version cannot select the project in an email subject, Redmine 3.2 and later supports selecting a target project with email subaddress. Please see RedmineReceivingEmails for the detail. I think you can use the feature instead.
