Some intresting e-mail addresses you should know

Here are some email addresses which can be useful in our day to day work.

  1. wsmith@wordsmith.org : By sending the blank mail to this address you can get the dictionary definition and synonym of that word. But make sure your Subject line as define yourword.

  2. username@prod.writely.com: Heard about Google Docs. You can upload your documents, spreadsheet and presentation using this address.

  3. pdf2txt@adobe.com : Send an PDF document attached to this mail address and it will come back as a plain text file. This utility can be useful when you don't have the PDF viewer. Alternatively you can use pdf2html@adobe.com, to get output in html format.

  4. upload@upload.slideshare.net - If you have (one or more) PowerPoint Presentations and PDF documents that you quickly want to share with friends, just email the files to Slideshare and they’ll instantly turn them into a web slideshow.

  5. And the coolest one is www@web2mail.com - Send an email with the URL of the web page in the Subject field (e.g. www.cnn.com) and you’ll soon find a copy of that web page in your Inbox. A perfect option when there’s no Internet access in the area or access is restricted (for instance, you want to read the BBC homepage in China).
