Emailing to Evernote More Effectively

I really like it when a software vendor emails me something useful, it happens too infrequently – but these tips were great.  If you’re a user of Evernote you probably know how to email directly into an Evernote Note.  Did you know that you could state which notebook and even include tags as well?  If not, this post is for you…

How to find your Evernote email address on a browser

Once you are logged in to go the top right hand corner and click your name and Account Settings

Then half way down the page you will see Email Notes to with an email address – you want to add this address to your contacts (I call mine Evernote Upload).

Sending a Note via Email

Now if I want to forward an email to my evernote account for later use or save document or even a website (better ways are available for websites) then I just email it to this address and it becomes a new note.

Specifying a Notebook

Just add @Notebook Name to the end of the subject line (replace Notebook Name with the actual title of your Notebook eg @eLearning would put it in my eLearning Notebook in Evernote)

Adding a Tag to the Note

After the @Notebook Name put a #tag eg #maths would put a “maths” tag on the note for searching later.

Setting a Notification

Add a ! to the subject line to add a notification eg if I want to receive a notification tomorrow I would include !tomorrow or !YYYY/MM/DD so !2013/09/03
