Any way of importing Outlook Notes?
Posted August 8, 2011
There's no way that I can see to directly import MS Notes, but starting in Outlook you can export to a variety of file types from CSV to Access and Excel. Depending on your content and your ability with those external apps could you export to something, massage the content into a reasonable format (and seperate files) and then export to another format and import to Evernote?
If you're a Prem user you could embed an entire Excel file/ several files as a quick fix.
You should be able to import Outlook Notes using Evernote Outlook Add-on (Outlook clipper).
If you've installed Evernote on the the same computer where you have Outlook, you should
see the Evernote button in your Outlook toolbar. Simply select the notes that you
wish to import and click the button.
Thanks, guys, will try both options

Try maxikk's version first - he has the benefit of being right! If you select multiple notes in Outlook and click the Evernote Add-0n button, you get multiple notes in Evernote - no need to export / import or mess with formatting. You'll gather I'm a follower of the "if at first you don't succeed, try a bigger hammer" method of data management, but the simplest solutions are often the best

Tried maxikk's method. Worked real well. I had envisioned some way of importing all my notes, then going through them and deleting the ones i didn't need. If i know myself, i would have not taken the time to do the deleting and now would have a lot of ***** in Evernote. This worked better because it forced me to go through every note and deciding whether i still need it or not, and tagging each note. Very cool! Thanks maxikk

Max it would useful if this piece of information were in the knowledge base. The article there only refers to Outlook Tasks.
Which versions of Outlook are supported? I have just installed Evernote for Windows 4 on the same computer and account as my Outlook, but I do not see any Evernote button on the Outlook toolbar. The version of Outlook I have is Outlook 2002 SP3.
That version of Outlook handles toolbar add-ins. I already have toolbar buttons for ESET Security and PDF Converter.
I am using Outlook 2003 in a Small Business Server environment. I did not see any such Evernote icon anywhere, but if you right-click on the note, you get a drop down menu which includes an option to "Save to Evernote". Furthermore, if you press control and choose which notes you want, you can make it a faster process, but the caveat is that all those notes will have the same Tag, so be careful chosing your notes. Also, in the very bottom of the left sided panel, I found a little Tab which I think has no label or distinguishing features, which offers the same functionality; perhaps this is the same Icon Max was referring to. Good luck
Sorry, definitely no elephant in the room here :-)
When I right click on a Outlook note I get the options for my other extension, Eset Security, but not for Evernote. Also Evernote does not appear on on any toolbar, menu or unused menu options.
Outlook 2002 doesn't have icons in a small pane on the left hand side (I did a quick google search of images for Outlook 2003 to see what you mean, and the two versions are definitely different).
I also checked the add-ins manager for COM Add-ins and found that Evernote is listed (C:\Program Files\Evernote\Evernote\EvernoteOL.dll) and theoretically loaded on Outlook start up.
Just doesn't appear to be functioning.
Simplest way at this stage will be to select a note, click in the note, select All using Ctrl-A, then copy to Evernote using the Evernote Tray Tool by pressing Win-A.
Edit: ... and repeat the above over 500 times. :-( Will force me to do a clean out!

Don't know what export options MSO2002 has, but if you have an option to dump all your files into a csv (or another compatible) format you could try that, or can you send a note by email? Use your friendly neighborhood @Evernote address (for a couple of trials) and see if that helps...
Thank you for the suggestion on the knowledge base article.
The Evernote Outlook Add-on only supports Outlook versions 2003, 2007 and 2010. Sorry for the inconvenience.
