I am sure slew people are using gmail as there email client. I know lot of peoples shifted to gmail from other providers mainly due to its usability. Now I am going to explain how to make your gmail account as an application to store your notes online, however this is a tricky mechanism but I guess it is useful for employees who regularly use Notes.
Add a contact with name as “Notes” and an email address “yourusername+Notes@gmail.com”. Click on the “Contacts” link on the left side of your mail box, will load the contact window. Click on the first ‘+’ icon which has a menu tip of “New Contact”.
After entering the name as “Notes” and email address as “yourusername+Notes@gmail.com”, please click on the save button. It will add the new contact.
Create a Label “Notes”. Go to Settings->Labels enter the label “Notes” at the bottom and click create button.
Create a Filter. Go to Settings->Filters->Create a new filter (on the bottom). During filter creation add the “To:” field as “yourusername+Notes@gmail.com” and click on the button labeled “Next Step”. In the next window check the checkbox with label “(Archive it)” and “Apply the Label:”, from the drop down select “Notes” and click on the button with label “Create Filter”.
Now let me explain the denouement of this magic. You know gmail accepts email address with format “YourUsername+AnyLabel@gmail.com”. The ultimate thing is that your gmail will accept all email address with format as above. For eg: send any email as per above format from another email address and watch whether it receives your mail box.
