Freemyfeed - Access GMAIL when blocked at school or work using email feed ~ BlogPandit

Email accounts being blocked at work and universities is not new, but geeks have always crafted newer techniques to circumvent these barbs. Gmail is one such very popular online email client, reason enough to block its usage across corporate and study campuses.

We will demonstrate a technique to overcome this restriction using email feed trick.

For some of you this might be a news that, like every other page on internet even your gmail account have a feed address, but the problem is, it requires a authentication before your feed reader can fetch it and that provides the authentication to your email feeds.

Freemyfeed
is one such service that provides a alternate feed address for web pages that needs authentication. So using freemyfeed you won't need to put down your login credentials every time your gmail feed is fetched.

    You can also use NutshellMail to access email and social networking messages at work. It is designed to comply with even strict corporate email policies. NutshellMail works by sending an email digest of all new messages and activity from your various accounts. You can choose to retrieve any message into your work account and even update your status and reply to friends Facebook and Twitter comments through email. Since it works through regular email channels, it is inherently compliant (just like your friend sending an email to your work account).
