Insert an email into a note and shown as icon

Recommended Posts

Hi all - is there any way to add an email from microsoft outlook into a note? And when clicking on the icon the microsoft outlook would open and view/process the email?

Something like the below??


The way I did that...

I copy/paste from microsoft outlook the email to my desktop.

Then I copy/paste the email from my desktop into the note...

Copy/paste from the microsft outlook directly into the evernote doesn't work.

Is there a way to do it faster????

Thank you very much in advance



**** Note that the add in of Evernote doesn't work on my outlook (probably because of the server and the policy rules of my company)

Hi.  You found it!  That's the way I use to add an email to Evernote so that if necessary I can doubleclick the icon and reopen the email in Outlook to forward or respond.  I drag and drop to the desktop and from there into a note: effectively one extra keystroke.

When I just need the content of an email I will often just forward it directly to my Evernote account.  With some mail clients it's possible to choose the notebook / apply tags / set reminders that way too.  If that's not available I set up a generic rule and use third-party app Filterize to check new notes and reroute / tag them as appropriate.

How to save email into Evernote

Hey, thank you for your time and reply. At least I know now,  that what I am doing is ok. When I create a note, and I need to save an email, I use the snipping tool. I make sure that I crop the date and what I need and I place it into a table cell. Helps to save into one note multiple email info.

Thanks once more.
