I'd like to have access to my Gmail (and/or Google Apps mail) inbox via RSS, specifically Google Reader.
I know that Google offers an SSL ATOM feed of your unread messages in your inbox via: https://mail.google.com/mail/feed/atom
you can also view unread messages by label: https://mail.google.com/mail/feed/atom/LABEL
My understanding is that this is either a dormant feature, or one that is not being actively developed or supported.
Since it requires an SSL connection, your RSS reader needs to support SSL logins. Google Reader doesn't currently support this, so I was planning on using Yahoo Pipes as an intermediary, as it will check the Gmail ATOM feed securely, and then push the content out via a non-SSL yahoo pipes feed.
Curious if anyone has a simpler workaround or solution for this.
