If you do not already have an Adafruit IO account set up, head over to io.adafruit.com to link your Adafruit.com account to Adafruit IO.
We need to create a new feed to hold data for the incoming emails. Navigate to the feeds page on Adafruit IO. Then click actions -> create new feed, and name this feed gmail.
- If you do not already know how to create a feed, head over to Adafruit IO Basics: Feeds.
We're also going to need our Adafruit IO username and active key. Navigate to your profile and click the View AIO Key button to retrieve them. Write them down in a safe place, we'll need them for later.
Now that Adafruit IO is all set up, let's link IFTTT to your Gmail account.
