Millions of Mac users also use Evernote, the popular notes utility which runs practically everywhere and on every device. Is there a way to get the two– Mail on your Mac, and Evernote notes– to play nice-nice with each other? Yes. And it’s easy.
From Email To Notes
What I like about Evernote is that it’s a very good note taking utility that just works. What I hate about email, is, well, everything all of us hate about email.
Instead of using multiple apps and methods to manage notes, I decided to stop using Mail to hold notes and move it where it’s always accessible.
That means Evernote. But how? EverMail.
This is one of those clever utilities which begs to be used often– once you’ve used it. And the way EverMail works makes it easy to use, even if you’ve never used Evernote (highly recommended).
Install EverMail on your Mac. It shows up as a Mail Preference panel. Click Link To Evernote. You’re good to go.
Messages in Mail are easily converted to notes in Evernote. Everything goes. Formatting, file attachments, and anything else in the message.
The note created by EverMail in Evernote links back to that message. That makes it easy to find messages from within Evernote, but it also works the other way– from Mail back to Evernote.
Options are few but simple to setup. Keyboard shortcuts to create new notes, or quick notes. Add attachments. Remember the last used notebook in Evernote. That’s about it. This is a brilliant combo– messages stay in Mail, but are easily accessible in Evernote. EverMail is from the same developer who publishes the highly recommended SendLater app, also a must-have on my Mac.
