Use iGoogle's Gmail Gadget to Get Around Blocked Gmail

The Daily Gyan blog adds to the list of work-arounds to access Gmail at places where it's normally blocked—this time, by using the fully-functional gadget available in the "new" iGoogle. If you're willing to sign up as a "developer" to get an early preview of Google's reworked start page, as Adam explained how to do, you simply add the Gmail gadget, click the "maximize" button on it, and you've got a nearly complete inbox view. And since iGoogle comes from a URL, it's less likely to be blocked, unless, of course, the IT overlords in question are reading this right now.


    I noticed this with the old iGoogle, but was always infuriated by only being able to see 4 words of the subject and nothing else.
