  1. OP here. Yep, it worked a treat -- although that was two years ago, so I can't recall the details. Definitely worth trying. (Worst that happens is you waste a little time. Your data should be safe.)
  2. Brilliant -- thank you! It worked a treat. Now I have one account with the proper address and account name. Many thanks!
  3. I accidentally created two Evernote account with two different e-mail addresses/usernames. I only use one, so I deleted the other -- it had zero notes anyway. Here's the problem: I want to use the e-mail address from the deleted account. I figured that, since that account is gone, I could simply change my e-mail address on the account I actually use. Unfortunately, it tells me that the address is still in use. So... how can I connect the e-mail address from that (deleted) account with my existing account? Thanks for any help you can give!
  4. Add me to the list. We use XP at work (and heck, lots of folks still use it, period), so I have to downgrade to 4.5. Annoying to say the least.
  5. Whoops, sorry -- "notebooks." Which are, effectively, folders (at least for me).
  6. I have found an absolutely wonderful use of Evernote in conjunction with my e-mail. Granted, it may only apply to people who use (or used) e-mail the way I did.... I found that I was using e-mail for three different things: Sending and receiving messages (duh) Keeping a to-do list -- that's what my inbox did An information-storage system -- I saved messages that contained some information I wanted to keep for future reference (e.g., an account number, an address, etc.) I found that #1 and #2 worked just fine for me; I'm good about keeping my inbox down to size. But I was also using my e-mail apps to store lots and lots of notes containing some small bit of info I might need sometime -- account or login info, people's contact data, various tidbits of information, even jokes. Even with a decent folder structure, though, e-mail apps really aren't made for storing information you need to get at. That's not what e-mail does. I could save each of those messages as a separate file ("Dad's_Dropbox_login.txt"), but that would get really messy. Enter Evernote, which I had been using on and off since it first debuted -- the days when it saved things as just a single long stream of text. I went through my entire folder structure -- everything from contacts to account info and receipts to... well, whatever. Unless I needed to save the message itself (in a CYA sorta way), I moved them into Evernote. Soon enough my Evernote folder structure approximated my (now defunct) e-mail folder structure. Now my e-mail has a handful of small folders, and Evernote is loaded with all the stuff I might need. Even better, it's so much easier to add stuff -- Web clipping or uploading or whatever. No more e-mailing things to myself. And -- just in case Evernote isn't the 100-year company it wants to be -- I can archive all my notes as well. My wife has a monster e-mail account, with literally thousands of messages she's saving for various reasons. So I get a kick whenever she sees my handful of folders with a few dozen messages. (Of course, my Evernote folders are bulging, but that's what it's for.) Anyway, I wanted to share how I found EN to be a nice way to clear out my e-mail, make all those little snippets easy to find (and update), and give me something to show off to others: "Wow, you have a lot of messages in your inbox there. You ever think of maybe getting a note-taking app?"
