Evernote Tips and Tricks Series - #1 - Emailing Notes into your Evernote account
I'm a huge fan and user of Evernote, and lots of people ask me for tips on using it, so I'm starting a series of blog posts on Evernote Tips and Tricks to share some great tips and ideas for using Evernote.
Tip #1 Emailing into Evernote
You can easily email text, attachments, and photos into Evernote via email (or anything else through the "share" function on most devices). This is a great way to save things into Evernote when you don't have the ability to use the Evernote Clipper. I use it to save emails that were sent to me - I simply forward them to my Evernote email and the whole thing, including attachments, is in Evernote.
First, you need to know your Evernote email address. IT will be under Account Info on the desktop version and under Settings in Evernote web. Add this to your contact list for easy access in the future. It will be in the following format: [username].firstname.lastname@example.org
The subject line of the email will become the title of the note. You can also add the destination notebook and tags to the subject line to make it easier to sort.
Example: rocket lesson plan for tuesday @lessonplans #rockets will create a new note, titled "rocket lesson plan for tuesday" in the "lessonplans" notebook with a tag of "rockets".
This only works for notebooks that already exist - it will not create a new notebook (just a new note).
Try it out.
