Gmail: How to maintain Notes?

Some email providers provide a “Notes” function to let you maintain a list of notes. For example you might keep Web site links, random thoughts, etc. Gmail doesn’t offer this feature, but by using some of Gmail’s other features, you can set up a very nice, easy to maintain group of notes…
Here’s what you do:
First, create a Contact with a Name of “Notes” and an Email Address of “username+Notes@gmail.com
Next, create a new Label called “Notes”
Finally, create a Filter to add the “Notes” Label any email addressed to “username+Notes@gmail.com“. Also, check the “Skip the Inbox (Archive it)” checkbox.
The effect is this:
When you email yourself from an email account other than your own Gmail account, address the email to “username+Notes@gmail.com“. When the message arrives in your Gmail account, it will automatically be archived into your “Notes” Label view, bypassing the Inbox. Nice and organized.

Cheers,
