Simply email yourself to-do notes, these will be filtered by the to: field and skip the inbox into a label…the unread items will be things you haven’t done yet, and stars can note importance.
This is basically the similar set up I explained in my Gmail RSS Reader hack post, but instead of emailing myself to-do notes, an RSS feed sends me new emails.
So what about mashing up these 2 hacks using Sabifoo (IM to RSS)…
Add Sabifoo to your Google Talk buddy list…now you can IM to an RSS feed.
Next set-up your RSS feed through a (RSS to email) service such as Rmail, then set this up in Gmail with the right filter and label as explained in my hack post.
Now you can send yourself notes to a Gmail label via IM, even better if you can send IM’s from your phone.
NOTE: if you can send emails from your phone then you don’t need to bother with RSS feeds or IM.
I love it…IM to RSS to email.
