Using Evernote To Control Your Newsletter Subscriptions

If you are anything like me, you are subscribed to countless newsletters and RSS feeds. And, like me, you may also have reports, updates, etc that are delivered to your inbox on a regular basis.

All these emails not only fill up your inbox, but may also cause you to miss important emails, emails that can get buried under all the clutter.

One application that helps me control my inbox is Evernote. If you are not an Evernote user, or, for that fact, even if you are, you may not know that you can have emails sent directly to your notebooks.

You can, in just 3 easy steps:

1. First, go into Evernote, create a new Notebook, and give it an appropriate name – For instance, Newsletters.

2. Then, locate the new notebook and click on the small gear icon.

When you do, a preferences pane will open. Click on the box that says “Make this my default notebook”. By making this selection, you are telling Evernote to send all Evernote emails to that notebook.

3. And finally, go to the “Evernote” menu item and choose “Account info …”. In this window, you will see an email address. This is the email address to use whenever emailing a note to Evernote.

When signing up for a newsletter, you can use this email address instead of your normal work email address. All your newsletters will be send to this notebook, and you can read them at your leisure, without having them clog up your inbox, or, even worse, distracting you and cutting into your productivity.

Have you used this feature? How do you control your incoming newsletters?

    Useful tip, Mark. I’ve just recently started out with Evernote and wasn’t aware it had this feature. I do need to keep on eye on newsletter subscriptions as I have so many.
