Save your travel reservations, email announcements, weekly automated reports, or anything you receive as an email, to Evernote, and access them from anywhere.

Find your Evernote email address

Your Evernote email address is a unique address you can use to forward emails into Evernote and looks something like this: To find your Evernote email address, go to your Evernote 'Account Summary', 'Account Info', or account 'Settings' page:

Pro Tip

Once you've located your Evernote email address, save it as a contact in your email address book with a name that is easy to remember, such as "Evernote Upload".


Save emails into Evernote

To save emails into Evernote, open an email, forward it to your Evernote email address (enter your Evernote address in the recipient field), and click Send. Your email appears as a new note inside Evernote that uses the email subject line as the title.

Before you send an email to Evernote, you can add special characters at the end of your subject line to specify which notebook you'd like to save it to, which tags you'd like to use, and any reminders you'd like to add to the note:

@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

Standard format:

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:

Send hotel reservations into the Travel Planning notebook and tag with japan:

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.

Automatically file email into notebooks with related notes

By default, emails sent to Evernote go into your default notebook. If you frequently save 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 specific sender or with a particular subject.

For example, you can configure your email application to forward any emails sent from "Google Analytics' with "weekly report" in the subject line to your company's "Reports" notebook.

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.
