Please verify that Evernote Outlook Add-in is enabled in your Outlook.

To do so, in Outlook:
  • Tools->Trust Center
  • Add-ins section
  • Check that Evernote.Outlook is not listed in the "Disabled Application Add-Ins"
  • If it is, on the bottom of the dialog in the Manage: dropdown, select "Disabled Items" and click Go..
  • In the Disabled Items dialog, select Evernote.Outlook and click Enable
4. In the Manage: dropdown, select "COM Add-ins" and click Go..
5. Make sure the Evernote.Outlook Add-in checkbox is checked

Hello all,
Newbie to this forum but not the forum community in general.

Not attempting to hijack anyone else's thread but a search gives me this one post that resembles my own difficulty. Don't hesitate to push my post to a new thread if necessary.
I have Evernotes installed on my Windows XP laptop, and version 3.3 on my Samsung Captivate (ATT) phone and simply want to be able to sync notes back and forth.
Problem is, I have about 8 years worth of (Aircraft Maintenance Records) notes already in use in Outlook 2000 in the laptop, which I've been unable to sync over to my Android by any other app/program.
Looking at the instructions provided in Maxikk's answer, I went to Outlook "TOOLS" and found NO menu item for "Trust Center".

My primary question is whether or not there is any way to import the notes I need from Outlook 2000. While initially researching Evernote, it sounded like it was a simple thing to sync between Outlook and Evernote, but I understand it may be Outlook version specific.

I do have access to Outlook 2003, but have preferred the 2000 version to date and have simply never updated. If the 2003 version of Outlook will help, I can go that route, at least temporarily. I don't use Outlook for much more than this exact task (Was hugely simple with a Blackberry). All other native Android apps (Contacts, E-mail, Tasks, etc) are fine as they are, with no need to sync between the handheld and my computer.

Additionally, to be taken into account... if I can get these notes imported from Outlook one time, I'll be happy. I can subsequently sync between the Android & Windows versions of Evernote with no need to use Outlook any further. So even a one-time solution is acceptable.

A secondary question.. Can I install the Windows Evernote program on a second computer (using the same account) and subsequently sync my notes between the 3 devices? (Desktop computer, Laptop computer and Android phone).

You are going to need a current version of Outlook (2007 or later) to make that work. "Evernote" is only about 4 years old, and we don't go back and engineer for systems prior to that. If you need more specific info, start a support ticket and we can assist you it will work with the current version of Outlook that is currently for sale from Microsoft:
