Sending e-mails to Evernote, a few tips


One of the basic ways to information into evernote is to use your evernote email address. Every Evernote account comes with an email address. You can find your email address by clicking on Tools->Account Info in the desktop client. Everything that is sent to this email address becomes a note in your default notebook in evernote. If you send a picture and text both of those things will be in the note. If you email an audio file that will become a note.

If you want to assign the email that you are sending to create a note in another notebook besides your default notebook, in the subject line of your email Include the @notebook. So lets say you wanted to send your email to the notebook called blog you can. Just send it like this

SUBJECT: This is the title @blog

BODY: what ever you want in the note.

Now if you want to add tags to the note you are creating you can do so by just adding #tagname. So again an example. We also want to tag our above example with the tag ideas. It would look like the following

SUBJECT: This is the title @blog #ideas

BODY: what ever you want in the note.

One thing to note. The notebook and tags that you assign via the subject line must already exist in your evernote account. You can not create new tags or notebooks via email.
