windows (Archived) Email to Notebook Stacks

Recommended Posts

I've really found the notebook stacks useful. Many times I send in notes via my email (to my specific Evernote email address). Is it possible to send a note in this format via email where you want it to go into a subfolder of the stack. i.e. NotebookStack/Notebook1

Normally I send this in with the subject line of @"notebookname".

Thanks in advance!

Stacks are just, well, stacks of notebooks. So if you email your note to the notebook, it will go to the correct stack.

I have tried this several time to different notebooks that are contained in a stack and it always goes to my default notebook. Not sure what is going on as I send email to my notebooks all day long without a hitch. I just recently created some stacks and found this limitation. Is there something I'm missing?

The notebook has to exist, and it has to be a synchronized notebook. I just tested it out and it works as expected. I have a notebook called Household, in a stack called Household. I mail something with a subject line like:

Blah blah blah @Household

and the mail ends up in my Household notebook. The stack actually means nothing.

These two comments seem to contradict each other.

Just as a follow up for this - I'm actually using less notebook stacks now and more tags. My notebooks were getting somewhat monotonous and hard to remember names when emailing notes and trying to assign notebooks blindly.

I still have some stacks but since switching to tags I've found that the information is easier to locate. I guess it's just varying perspectives on where the information resides in EN.

This failed for me also until I realized that the @ # syntax requires the fields to be at END of the TITLE line -- not in the middle
