Did you know that you can send emails from your inbox directly into your Evernote account and automatically assign them to destination notebooks? If you haven’t discovered this feature yet, you’ll find that it’s a great way to save messages like electronic receipts, travel information, and anything else you might want to find later in a place that you can search and access from any computer or mobile device (your Evernote account!).
To do this:
- Forward the email to your Evernote email address. Don’t know what your Evernote email address is? Go to the Account Info area of Evernote for Windows and Mac, Settings on Evernote Web and the Sync tab on Evernote for iPhone and iPad — your Evernote email will be listed there. On your Android device, go to Settings then Account Info to find your Evernote email.
- To specify the destination notebook, append the subject line with the symbol “@” followed by the name of an existing notebook; to add a tag, include “#” followed by an existing tag.
- If sending emails to a recently created notebook or tagging with a recently created tag, remember to sync your account first.
- If adding both notebook and tag information, be sure to include the notebook name first.
