  1. Thanks for the suggestion. That is a decent workaround and would achieve what I'm looking to do though it's significantly slower since I can't pre-define my tags in the clipper. With my quick steps in outlook I just have outlook auto append the apporiate tags and use the nifty evernote email feature to have that added to the note right away. With the clipper I'd need to type them in each time. The outlook task also auto moves the email to an archive folder. My goal is to maintain an empty inbox and primarily work out of evernote. Brings up a good idea though. Perhaps an easier way to implement what I suggested would be to add an "Attach email to note" checkbox in the clipper. Then allow users to set a default for the setting based on their preference. I think it's very common for folks to want to reply to all as an end result of the things they save in Evernote.
  2. Does anyone know of a way to force evernote to attach an outlook .msg file that is forward to your evernote email rather than pasting in the text of that .msg file into the note in evernote? Here's my use case: I use Evernote to manage tasks using a variation of http://www.thesecretweapon.org/ method. Generally tasks for me start with someone emailing me some details on a topic. If it's not something I can respond to quickly and immediately I'll forward the email via Outlook to my evernote email address which will create a new note (I use a "quick action" for this that makes it one click and allows me to auto attach specific evernote tags). Once the task is in a note I use evernote to keep track of my research and progress on the project which evernote is awesome for. The problem comes in wrapping things up. When all is said and done the typical final action is to respond back to everyone on the original email chain (or perhaps I need to respond to provide an update mid project). That last step becomes inefficent because I need to either keep copies of the original email in a special folder in Outlook and search for the correct one again or manually scrub through the evernote text to make sure I grab all the email address from the final chain. The ultimate solution to this would be to have an option within evernote that would allow me to attach the outlook .msg files as attachment rather than auto converting. Ideally it would be nice to have a just attach, attach and convert, or just convert option. I saw a similar request for photos.
