Evermail is a simple, richly-featured plugin for Mail that can convert any email into a note and sync it with your Evernote account. Evernote’s ubiquity has spawned a whole universe of unique software solutions that stand on the shoulders of the note-taking giant, filling in gaps or extending functionality. While Evernote’s flexibility has led to a vast array of novel products from countless developers, Evermail has its sight set on addressing a fairly straightforward, natural need – saving emails as notes – and does so with classic Apple-level polish.
It’s this attention to detail that sets Evermail apart and makes it truly worth the investment. Conventional wisdom suggests that one developer trying to connect another developer’s product to that of a third developer would result in some jagged edges and rough seams, but Evermail defies this expectation. Longtime Evernote users recall the days when it was free to forward emails to Evernote (this now requires a paid Evernote Premium account – Evermail gets around this!), but even then you were left with odd formatting, unwanted titles, and more, ultimately requiring a bit of clean-up duty when returning to the native Evernote app. Now, with the Evermail plugin, you get an immediate preview of your richly detailed note, complete with extensive abilities to edit both peripheral data and the contents of the note before it’s synced with Evernote. And with a panel within Mail’s preferences, a recognizable Evernote logo button slotted into Mail’s UI, and some intuitive keyboard shortcuts, there’s no better, cleaner way to get an email saved into Evernote than by using Evermail.
