Export a Gmail message to Google Docs

Gmail DocsI use a lot of Google services on a day to day basis, including Gmail, Google Calendar, and Google Docs. So I'm always excited when Google announces a new way to make these web apps play well together. Yesterday the company announced a new feature in Gmail Labs that adds a "create a document" link to your email menu.

When you open an email and click the document link, the message will be exported as a Google Document. From there you can edit it, share it, or download it as a Word, PDF, or RTF file.

In order to enable the feature, just click the Gmail Labs icon (it looks like a beaker and hangs out next to the settings link in the top right side of your Gmail homepage) and scroll down until you see the Create a Document option. Click enable and Gmail will reload with the feature enabled.
