How to use outlook with evernote

Evernote is a program that lets you create notes for later reference. You can create these notes via the desktop client, a Web-based interface or by using the clipper tool. The clipper tool is a part of the desktop client and gives you the ability to quickly save Outlook e-mails as notes in your Evernote account. You can clip and save as many Outlook messages as you want.

Double-click the "Evernote" desktop icon, which opens the program, and then click the red "x" button on the upper-right corner. The program will revert to the system tray and actively run in the background.

Launch the Microsoft Outlook e-mail client. Go to the message you want to save into Evernote.

Press the "Windows" and "Print Screen" keys simultaneously to bring up the Evernote screen clipper tool.

Click the mouse cursor at the top of the message and hold down the left mouse button. At the same time, scroll diagonally down from the top left to the bottom right. When you release the mouse button, the selected area is automatically copied and saved to your Evernote account.
