Gmail on your RSS Feeds now.

NOW READ your mail on your Feed Reader ...

Gmail has a introduced a new feature which is not available in other webmail applications:i.e feeds for unread messages.
  1. For example, the feed http://mail.google.com/mail/feed/atom/ shows the most recent unread items from your inbox.
  2. Gmail also offers feeds for your labels: http://mail.google.com/mail/feed/atom/labelname/,
B its always better have a comprehensive listing of all the unread messages, not just the ones that have a certain label. And it becomes little tricky also to remember all the labels... you might have a dozen of them to keep on your fingertips... And as "unread" is one of the many built-in labels in Gmail, so this can be used to obtain the feed: http://mail.google.com/mail/feed/atom/unread/

Gmail's feeds require authentication, so they don't work in many feed readers, like Google Reader or iGoogle.
