Two related issues to living in a digital world still affect most of us. Email. And notes. As to the latter, we collect pieces of information daily and need a place to store and organize each one. As to the former, it’s the necessary evil of Mac and PC users, often because we use email as a storage place for notes and reminders.
What if there were a way to take an email message and convert it to a note in a well organized note taking app. Oh, I don’t know. Something like Evernote! It would be a way to merge email into notes.
Let’s call it Evermail. Evernote gets email messages and stores them as notes in this clever and highly useful Mac utility.
EverMail works as a Mail plugin which makes it easy to convert an email message to an Evernote note. Install, set it up to link to Evernote, click to convert and create a note in Evernote which links back to the email message in Mail. The note keeps the email formatting, attachments, links and everything else.
EverMail works forwards and backwards. Each email note in Evernote is linked back to the original email message (good for backups), yet remains a note. Each email message provides direct accessibility to the Evernote note.
Together, the two provide Mac users with the benefits of a popular and free notes app in Evernote, and still keep messages stored in Mail. EverMail is from the same Mac app developer who publishes one of my all time favorite email plugins– SendLater— a utility which lets you create an email message but send it later via a scheduler. Both are well done and very useful, though EverMail more so to those who needs a notes app or who already use Evernote.
