Mastering Evernote: Send And Organize Notes, Photos, And Audio Files Via Email [OS X Tips]

Evernote Settings

It’s generally super easy to get notes into Evernote, using the desktop client, the mobile client, and even the web client. There are a ton of different apps on Mac and iOS that will let you interface with Evernote, like Penultimate on the iPad or Reeder on the Mac.

But did you know that you could send emails along to Evernote, too? If you’re swiping through emails on your iPhone, or scrolling through them on your Mac, you can quickly forward important ones to your Evernote account, for later follow up or archiving. Here’s how.

Launch Evernote on your Mac, and click on the account shield icon with your name by it. Choose Account Info… and you’ll see a bunch of information about your account, including how much storage you have left, a sign out button, and the email address you can send emails to to organize into Evernote. If you’re using the web interface, this email address is found by clicking on your shield account icon in the upper right, and choosing Settings. The address should be your account sign in name, followed by some numbers, and then @m.evernote.com. Copy this email address to your clipboard, then head over to your email client.

Send an email you want to store in Evernote to this new address. You can send along notes, snapshots and audioclips along to this address, and they’ll go right into your default Evernote notebook. If you want to send your email to a particular notebook, simply add the @ symbol followed by the name of the notebook you want to send it to, like @homeinventory or @bandlyrics.
