There are many tactics to deal with entirely unwanted spam, but what about those emails that fall into a grey area? Newsletters, daily deal offers and other messages you sometimes want can clutter up your inbox quickly. If you're feeling overloaded, one clever trick is to have those newsletters sent to Evernote instead.
This tip comes from Rebecca Sowards-Emmerd, Evernote's Outdoor Travel Ambassador:
When I subscribe to electronic newsletters I'll provide my Evernote email address. This keeps them out of my email and easily found at a later date when I want to look up or read content. Be careful to only subscribe to newsletters you trust, though - you don't want your Evernote email address on spam lists.
If you don't know where to find your Evernote email address, here are the official instructions:
First, find your Evernote incoming email address. It'll look something like [username][email protected] The address is located under Account Info in the desktop versions of Evernote, under Settings in Evernote Web, and in the Sync tab of Evernote for iPhone. We recommend adding this email address to your address book or contact list.
Just subscribe to newsletters with that address and they'll pop up in Evernote rather than your inbox. This way you can ignore them, search for them, organise them, and tag them however you want.
