Get Feed of Unread Messages & Labels in Gmail

Gmail has a great feature of offering feed for unread messages, which is currently not available in any webmail. This feature lets you to subscribe to RSS feeds of your Inbox. For using this service, you would need to use is http://mail.google.com/mail/feed/atom and the feed reader will need authentication. This wont work in Google Reader, but desktop readers like FeedDemon will support authentication.

    It needs authentication… That’s the main minus point that you cannot make use of other services to monitor your mail anywhere anytime.

    I’d stumbled upon this tip on GOS before.

    I think you forgot to mention to use ‘unread’ in place of label, to view unread mails.

    Coincidentally, I’m using FeedDemon too – quite powerful, though not as mobile as GReader.

    Update: It shows all the mails, including those that are filtered and archived. Which means, this is a big no-no for me 🙁

    @Tech Pavan,
    Obviously, mail service should require authentication.

    @Sumesh,
    Right, need to add unread in place if label.

    If I was in an Office, it would be a cool trick. 😈 Most of the people wouldn’t have a clue that I’m checking my personal stuffs – mails and feeds. Bliss. :mrgreen:

    @Ashish,
    Welcome.

    @Ashwin,
    But in some offices emails are blocked so you may not be able to fetch feeds also.
