So you have a GMail account and an RSS Feed Reader. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could be notified via RSS when you get a new email, well now you can. GMail have introduced ATOM feeds for email accounts and they can be accessed at a universal URL of https://gmail.google.com/gmail/feed/atom you just need to log in and it will provide you with your personalised feed.
All you need to do now is make sure you can pass in a username and password from your feedreader. My favorite feed reader is SharpReader and that seems to do the trick for me.
BTW, I have a few more gmail invites available if anybody wants them.
