Microsoft OneNote is a resourceful software program that lets computer users quickly and conveniently save notes from the Web, the Outlook e-mail client and other Microsoft products. Unfortunately, Gmail users cannot send e-mails directly to OneNote. The Gmail web interface is not compatible with the OneNote. However, there is a workable solution which requires you have Microsoft Outlook installed. If you do, then you can add your Gmail account and send e-mails from within the program to OneNote.
