Personalized email?

Idea

The mail to address that Evernote generates is pretty cool, but I was hoping that at some point they could make it editable.  Say it's evernoteuser3432432@m.evernote.com . it would be awesome if it could just be your username instead.  Anyone else think this would be a cool addition?

When I first started out using this feature I had the same idea. I've been using it for quite a while and really like that it's not editable (probably one of the few that thinks that way lol). For me it's a security thing. The mail to email is less likely to get into the hands of anyone that shouldn't have it if it's randomly generated.

Makes sense.  I am just glad I saved the email to my phone and other devices. I'd never remember it. 😛

My solution was to crate a contact with a simple name for my EN email address (EN Ann for example).  Then when I forward anything easy to remember the "address".  FWIW.

For those who have the desire for ultimate personalization (not for the average user), and you have/register your own domain, you can create a forwarding email of your own design to your existing Evernote email-into address. So, if you had mypersonaldomain.com you could create an alias forwarding address evernote@mypersonaldomain.com to send to your evernoteuser3432432@m.evernote.com address.

A mail forwarding rule is a feature of most email client software.
It also resolves an issue with Evernote dropping mail header information.

>>I like to create project-based email addresses for colleagues to email into my Evernote project notebook.

fwiw Some email clients support adding +<text> to the email name
          For example mail to DTLow+Projectx@gmail.com is directed to my DTLow email account

Yes, that can be done quite easily. It simply doesn't help the user with aesthetics/control of that email address, especially if you're sharing it with others (such as close family members, colleagues, or an administrative assistant).

I like to create project-based email addresses for colleagues to email into my Evernote project notebook. Then, upon completion of that project, I delete that email address. Now, I don't worry about them continuing to litter my Evernote account with forwarded messages (even by mistake). 😉
