At this point you're becoming an intermediate user of Gmail. We've labeled, filtered, and colored our incoming mail. We've ...
gotten access to Google Documents and we're using Gears so we can read our email even when we can't get online. Now it's time to add Remember The Milk so we can handle all of our tasks from the Gmail interface as well.

Hi. This is Mike Callahan; Doctor File Finder and welcome to part nine of our special Butterscotch.com ten part series on Gmail 201 Intermediate Studies. Now, on this segment, I am going to talk about getting Remember the Milk into your Gmail. For those of you who don’t know, Remember the Milk is a powerful task tool that is online so you can access it everywhere just like Gmail.
So far we’ve gotten to the point where we have our Gmail labeled, filtered, colored. We have our Google documents. We use Gears to get our mail offline and now, we’re going to get our tasks in there.
So, we’ll go to the Remember the Milk site. I have links for these things in the show notes. Click on Services. I’m going to be doing an entire series on Remember the Milk. So watch for that because there’s Remember the Milk for the iPhone, for the Blackberry. But here’s Remember the Milk for Gmail.
So, we’ll click on that. It’s a regular Firefox extension. There’s also Milk gadget for Labs but we’re going to do the Gmail Firefox Extension. Say Install Now. It’s asking me if that’s okay. I’ll say allow that. Now it pops-up. It comes down. Install now.
Now we want to restart Firefox. Let’s say OK. Okay so, Firefox has restarted. We’ll go back to our inbox. Here is Remember the Milk. I have to sign into my account and now you can see that Remember the Milk will appear right here down the side where I can manage tasks, do things that I need to get done. I remember to put out the trash today, so I can mark that as Complete.
So, this is a handy way to manage your tasks right in Gmail. It’s right here. You can’t miss it. You can postpone things; move things, share tasks, do everything that Remember the Milk can do right from your Gmail interface.
So, that is adding Remember the Milk to Gmail and that concludes part nine.
