Direct Email To Notebook - NEW FEATURE REQUEST



Evernote creates an "alias" email address for users to email notes directly into our database of notes. The email address is in this format:

   <display name>.<random string>@m.evernote.com

When email notes are sent to this address, they are stored in the "default" notebook.
We can direct a message to a specific notebook by including the notebook name in the subject line.

HOWEVER, if we subscribe to a newsletter we cannot affect the subject line. All newsletters end up piling into the default notebook and we must manually move them into the desired notebook.

I'd like to suggest giving users a way to indicate the notebook name in the email address, so that we can have newsletters go into the desired notebook.

This could be accomplished by changing the alias email address to this format:

   <display name>.<random string>.<notebook name>@m.evernote.com

By allowing users to add a DOT and then define the notebook name, the alias address becomes a way to direct subscriptions to the desired notebook.

If users leave off the notebook name in the alias address, the note will go to the default notebook, as currently happens.

This should not be too difficult to implement and will be very helpful for thousands of Evernote users.

Thank you very much for considering this new feature.

Hi.  Or you could use your own,  or a third-party email service like Gmail and an Evernote add-in like IFTTT so all mails to your third-party email inbox are automatically added to the correct notebook depending on the origin email address or the subject line content.
