Gmail can be way more than just a grocery list in your inbox. With the right system, and a few recent tweaks, Gmail Tasks can help someone new to Getting Things Done. Web Worker Daily gets down to nuts and bolts and re-configures the Gmail Labs feature in some really clever ways. You rename your current items list to "Inbox," then add some key action-oriented lists: "Next actions," "Deferred," "Delegated," and "Someday/maybe," and then use notes and the "Inbox" list as capture tools. The big drawback to this system, for GTD purists at least, is the lack of a context tagging tool. That's find for the writer, who only uses this GTD system for work-related material, not as a life processing methodology. But it's a great tool for anyone who doesn't need the big-block engine of a total organising system, or who just wants a way to act on what they saw in their email. Hit the link, of course, for a fuller walk-through and explanation.
