Check Google E-Mail (Gmail) from an RSS Feed

If you have an RSS reader, you can monitor your Gmail through a feed. Read on to discover how this is done.


If you use a Gmail account as your secondary email, you probably do not want to log-in through the web and check it throughout the day.

Instead, you can check for new email through your RSS feed reader.

Here is the URL to your Gmail RSS Feed:

    https://USERNAME:PASSWORD@gmail.google.com/gmail/feed/atom

Just replace USERNAME and PASSWORD with your own case-sensitive user/pass combo. If you are using a web-based RSS-feed reader, remember to set these feeds as private so that your user/pass combo will not be visible to the public.

Update/Edit: Google recently renamed its sites. Please use this instead: https://mail.google.com/gmail/feed/atom.
