(Archived) View Word doc sent in e-mail



Hello there!

Being my first foray into using Evernote, I may be missing something about its use and capabilities. I was under the impression that I could e-mail most file types (.doc, .xls, .pdf, .gif, .jpg, .tif, etc) as attachments in an e-mail to my Evernote e-mail address, to then be able to view them in Evernote. Is this not correct? For example:

  • I created a file in Pages on my iPad

  • I then e-mailed said Pages file as a Word doc (.doc) attachment to my Evernote e-mail address from my iPad

  • I was under the impression that I could then open my Mac Evernote application to be able to see said Pages file as a Word doc

  • Instead, I only see my signature as an Evernote note (i.e. "Thank you, Berklie" - the only text in the e-mail); the Word doc attachment is nowhere to be seen

Is being able to see attachments not how Evernote is supposed to work? I do have the free account, so I do not know if that is a limitation. Thank you in advance for any help,

Free accounts only support PDF and the most common image types. If you want to send Pages files then you need to go Premium. You can try it out for a month if you want to get a feel for whether you will find it useful or not.

By going Premium, I was able to now see any attachment sent to my Evernote account. Thank you. I have a follow-up question, however:

  • Is there a way to "pull" the attachment out of the e-mail message that was sent to my Evernote account?

What I mean is, I have no need for the actual e-mail that was sent to my account... only the attachment it contained. Currently, I still see the e-mail message (which has no text of any value) that contains the attachment. I really only would like to see the attachment, and not the e-mail at all. So, is there a way to only have the attachment be the Note, and get rid of the e-mail that was used to send the attachment?

Thanks so much,
