Gmail Atom Feed

A friend let me know that Google offers an Atom feed of your Gmail inbox! Simply add https://gmail.google.com/gmail/feed/atom to your favorite Atom-capable newsreader and voila, notification and short excerpts of new messages without ever opening a browser window. There is a gotcha: If you have multiple Gmail accounts, you may run into trouble -- a lot of feed readers don't let you subscribe to the same feed URL multiple times. One more thing -- some newsreaders don't know how to handle SSL and/or feeds that require authentication (which yours must for this to work).
