Help: Forwarded emails with @Notebook going into default.

Recommended Posts

I currently have a dedicated email account for all my receipts, 'receipts@xxxxxx.com'. I've set this account up to forward to my Evernote account and I've set up a notebook called "Receipts". When I forward, I add @Receipts to the subject line. My understanding is that this should have Evernote place the note created from the email in my Receipts notebook, however it's going into my default ('Inbox') notebook instead.

Am I doing something wrong?

Email specifying notebook works for me.

I forwarded this post with the title

    Fwd: Help: Forwarded emails with Notebook going into default. @eHighlighter

and it was added to my eHighlighter notebook

The "@NotebookName" needs to have at least one space after the end of your Subject line, and it must be the first Evernote key, unless you have a Reminder key.  See How to save email into Evernote

Thanks for your replies. That's exactly what I'm doing. I just created a test email with the subject "@Receipts Test 7" (see image). I have a notebook called receipts, yet it arrived in my Inbox. It's also happening with other notebooks. It also happens when I email my Evernote email address directly, rather than forwarding.

Could this be a bug?

Try subject: Test7 @Receipts   

The notebook specification has to be at the end of the subject line

Actually, you are not doing exactly as I stated:

You must have some text, that will become the note title, PRIOR to the space and "@NotebookName".

For example:
Test 7 @Receipts

Yes - a bit embarrassed I missed that, but the joy at having the solution outweighs the shame!
