Any difference between forwarding a Gmail

Recommended Posts

Is there a difference between forwarding a Gmail directly to Evernote, as opposed to using the Gmail add in?  The add in seems to take considerably longer to load but gives you some additional options which I never use anyway.  Sometimes I notice that the gmail arrives in Evernote in a different way depending on which of the two methods I use.  I may be mistaken about this.

Personally I don't use Gmail, so from my understanding of what I learned elsewhere:

Forwarding an email works through a mail server. AFAIK there is one server attached to approximately 10 user accounts.

Forwarding through the add in is working through the EN API, similar to the web clipper.

The add-on is more like a clipper. Designed to work directly with the Gmail web interface and reproducing layout etc.

The forward to Email is simply attaching an Email into your notebook.
