comment How to sync files from OneDrive to Dropbox?
I'm guessing you can get OneDrive to send you an email when a file is uploaded, but the email won't include the contents of the file. You might be able to fiddle with this idea and get it to work, though.

comment Is it possible download a mp3 file when new RSS feed is provided?
Purely as a test (that probably won't work), I've created ifttt.com/recipes/219559-webapps-59072-test -- you can help me test by using this recipe :)

comment Why does IFTTT dislike this RSS feed?
Wow, an actual official answer-- this InterWebs thing is terrific ;) ... but seriously: this is just a test feed to make sure I can get things working: real data will come later. According to ifttt, "created 5 days ago never triggered". Is there a reason ifttt isn't seeing this feed as updated? What should I do to make this feed look like its continuously updated?

comment Is it possible download a mp3 file when new RSS feed is provided?
As @AlE. notes, none of the feed data you can choose has the MP3 file in this case. The tag that does is the "enclosure" URL, which ifttt does not have on its dropdown menu. You could write a custom feed to "wrap" this feed and/or a webpage that redirects based on the feed URL, but both would require going above and beyond what ifttt does by itself.

comment craigslist anonymous e-mail relay service usage
Yes, any email sent to/from craigslist relay is anonymized. I've had long back and forth conversations with people where neither of us learn each other's email address. You can also test to confirm.

comment Gmail: filter all emails forwarded from specific address
A dumb answer: forward your uni mail to username+uni@gmail.com instead and filter to that address. If you have username@gmail.com, username+anything@gmail.com also works

comment How do I filter messages that are sent to a single recipient?
If an email is sent to two of your addresses, does gmail treat it as two separate emails for filtering purposes? If so, my solution will work. If not, it won't. Anyone know for sure? I'm too lazy to test :)

@jonsca Waiting to see if IFTTT accepts the revised, validated feed. So far, the logs show it hasn't tried to access the feed since I fixed it.

@AlE. D'oh! Found several errors, working to fix them now, thanks! Was hoping IFTTT would've caught them at 'add' time, but apparently not.

comment Post email replies to the Google Group
So, something like a filter: when someone in HR sends an email, a copy is automatically sent to everyone in HR? For my original idea, you could use a templated sig file and train HR to put their name in a specific place in the template when answering.

comment Post email replies to the Google Group
Instead of having hr@domain.com being a forward, could you turn it into a single account where any HR person could login (shared passwords are a bad idea, but perhaps OK here) and thus see all the received and sent mail to/from that account? Or is that what HR is objecting to?

comment Post email replies to the Google Group
If the HR department is also using gmail, can you add "Reply-to: hr@domain.com" and/or add hr@domain.com as a 2nd address that they can post from? Of course, they'll still have to remember to use that address when replying. A third possibility would be have to them just login as hr@domain.com when answering/sending email?

comment Emails from unknown sender with attachment
Could you give us the IP address of the "strange place"? It might have been some Google internal funniness that you're not supposed to see, especially if the IP addresses were 10., 192.168., etc.

comment How do I filter messages that are sent to a single recipient?
Create a filter for marketing.myorg@gmail.com that deletes everything and a filter for engineering.myorg@gmail.com that forwards to where ever you want? Obviously, test this before putting it into production use, it may not work.

comment Sharing a location URL for a list
I just tried it on the welcome board, and hovering over the list gives me the URL "trello.com/c/TuXvFIXt/6-or-checklists"; which takes me straight to the list. Of course, your URL will be different.
