    Great tutorial. I’ve been doing something similar to this involving manually forwarding these types of emails to my evernote address. Silly question… is it necessary to setup account level forwarding like you outlined in Step 1? Wouldn’t that forward all your incoming emails to Evernote? I’m thinking this might accomplished with Steps 2 and 3 alone and then once you have the rule in place it’ll run on auto-pilot. Does that seem right or am I missing something?

      Hi Ron. Step 1 adds the Evernote email address in as an option to forward to. Without this, the dropdown list of email addresses to choose from in Step 3 would be empty.
      It doesn’t automatically forward everything to Evernote – you still need to setup the filter/rule.

    Originally for emails that met the criteria (task greater than 2 mins or reference material), I was manually forwarding emails to EN (if on iPhone or iPad) or clipping them from Chrome. The variability in those two methods was a bit of a pain. Clipping was good because EN would have a link back to the email to respond later. Forwarding was good because it would contain all the text and attachments of the original email.

    Since I found that almost all of them were needing to be manually forwarded anyway, I recently set my Gmail to automatically forward ALL email to Evernote. I figure it’s easier to hit delete a few times in EN than to manually forward all these emails.

    The only drawback is that there’s no link to click on that will pop open that original email. If anyone knows of a way in Gmail to automatically include a link in the forwarded email, please share!
