How to send email into Evernote

With Evernote Plus and Premium, you can save any email directly into Evernote using your Evernote email address. This makes it easy to store your travel reservations, email announcements, weekly automated reports, or anything that comes through email.

Find your Evernote email address

Find your Evernote email address inside your Account Info or Settings. It will look like this: On most devices, you'll find it by clicking your username and then 'Account Info'. Find the address listed there and write it down or copy it. Save this address as a contact in your email address book with a name that is easy to remember, such as Evernote Upload.


Send an email into Evernote

To send an email into Evernote, open an email and click Forward. For the recipient, enter your Evernote email address.

The Subject line will become the title of the new note.

You can add special characters at the end of your subject line to control the destination notebook, add tags, or set a Reminder.

@Notebook: Notes will go into your default notebook unless you specify one using the at (@) symbol and notebook name, such as @travel. You do not need quotes if you have a space in the notebook title. For example, you would write @International Travel or @My Notebook.

#Tag: Add tags using the pound or hashtag (#) symbol, such as #manchester #england

!Reminder: Use the exclamation point (!) to set a Reminder. To add an alarm to the Reminder, add the word tomorrow, or a date with numeric year, month, day separated by slashes. For example: !, !tomorrow, !2013/06/24

Send your email and you'll see it appear as a note inside Evernote. 

The standard is:

Email Subject: [Title of note] ![optional date for Reminder] @[notebook] #[tag]



Send party planning ideas into your Events notebook, tag with anniversary, and set a Reminder:

Append an email to an existing note

To add some text to an existing note, put a " +" at the end of your subject line and we'll place the body of the email into the most recent note with that title.

Auto-Filing Email

By default, emails sent to Evernote go into your default notebook. If you frequently forward emails into Evernote and organize them with similar notebooks and tags, you can enable Auto-Filing. When you forward an email into Evernote, auto-filing will look for similar notes inside your account and apply the same notebook and tags.

Enable Auto-Filing from your Account Preferences > Personal Settings.

Automatic Email Filtering or Forwarding

You can also set up your email client's automatic email filters to automatically forward every email from a certain sender or with a particular subject. For example, you may have a weekly report from Google Analytics that you want to forward into your company's "reports" notebook. Just set the recipient email address to be your Evernote email address.

Reset Your Email Address

To reset your incoming email address, go to your 'Account Settings' page, select 'Account Summary', and click Reset in the 'Email Notes to' section. This is useful when you've shared your incoming email address with others and want to revoke access to your email at anytime.
