    Execution in a sandbox means that the OS let the software run in a predefined area of the Memory. It does not allow the software to execute commands that reach out of this area, called the sandbox.

    All contact of the software and the „outside“ is handled by the OS. This allows a more secure control of apps running on a computer, but restricts the software as well.

    iOS is executing any app in a sandbox, on MacOS the apps loaded through the AppStore are sandboxed.

    Got it. Thanks, PinkE.

    Thanks for posting. I can’t reproduce this, and would avoid the AppStore version because of its execution in a sandbox. I have experienced problems in the past that went away with the direct download.

    So everyone has its use history.

    I don't know what you mean by 'its execution in a sandbox'.. but I'm probably too junior for that. 
    Anyway.. it worked for me, was hoping it works for someone else too. 



  3. I had this issue for a week now ( July 2021 ). On Mac with Big Sur 11.4 - Evernote 10.17.6

    At first I waited for Evernote to fix it, as they usually are on top of things. Since it has been a week, I did the whole uninstall properly and reinstall etc.. a number of times.. never worked. I went to the help page to see if there are better ways to uninstall, but it's just what we all know and do..but they do say ' download from our website or the Mac app store'..

    Turns out, it was fixed after I reinstalled from the Mac App Store.. not from the download button on the Evernote website.

    I thought I'd leave that here for anyone who's struggling with the loop to hell ' something went wrong on our side, please restart evernote ' and then it doesn't quit..so force quit and all that..

  4. I've set up Apple Mail app on Mac to forward my incoming e-mail to Evernote, so that I save it all into a searchable archive. 
    And I've set gmail (admin console) to forward outgoing mail to Evernote too.. 

    The outgoing forward is flawless.. I can create and send from Apple Mail and the gmail server forwards it to Evernote. 
    The incoming mail comes in twice! That's a bit overkill. 
    I tried setting it up in the gmail server too..but it still comes in twice. So.. My conclusion is that Evernote gets it wrong. 
    I deleted the forward (and it didn't come in anymore) and recreated the rule. But it still comes in twice. 

    Anyone has a solution for this?

    And with that in mind.. does anyone have tips on how to archive them best and easiest? I'll browse around on the server..but tips are welcome!
