  • Gmail LogoNow that Google Apps is available for all to try out, I thought I would share a small tip regarding sending emails to yourself via nicknames, email lists, or alias account that point to you. Specifically, if you are accustomed to sending yourself to-do lists, links, reminders etc. you might set up an email list or account alias so that you can easily set a rule that files (label, in Google terms) such items based on the address. One example might be setting up as an address that points to your primary account mailbox so you can easily send yourself links that are then labeled as links and more easily retrievable. Another example might be to set up an email list such as that points to both your account and another account (such as a spouse) that applies a reminder label to said items. In Gmail based services, these items will not show up in your inbox.
