How to Save Emails from Gmail to your Evernote Account

Want to Save your Email Messages from Gmail to your EverNote Account? Well, that’s possible and its very easy to have a backup of your Gmail emails and save them to Evernote. Evernote is my favorite tool that I use every day as a productivity tool to do tons of tasks and saves hours of frustrating doing it manually.



“When it comes to taking all manner of notes and getting work done, Evernote is an indispensable tool”. Evernote is a cross-platform, freemium app designed for note taking, organizing, and archiving. It is a place for individuals and teams to capture, nurture, and share ideas in any form and be arranged, organized by making a to-do list for every day.

But, you can also use Evernote creatively for doing other tasks like taking an email Backup from Gmail and never miss on an important task. We all have very important files stored and sales deals closed on our email, and losing an important email by mistake is a freaky thing to think. Therefore, consider backing up your Gmail Account with Evernote for free.


Gmail messages can be saved in Evernote with the help of google sheets and this can be implemented in less than a minute.


  •   To copy the Evernote spreadsheet in your google drive click here
  • Enter your email address and other values in column D. For details refer the above screenshot.
  • click the Start button, authorize the script and it will run in the background. Close the sheet and any messages in Gmail with the label Evernote (cell D4) will be sent to your Evernote in specified notebook and tag.
  • It is an open source script and the access of any third party is denied to your google and google drive data. You can also use Bulk Auto Forward tool for sending bulk messages to other email based workflows like kindle, Instapaper etc.

You can stop google sheet anytime from forwarding your Gmail messages to Evernote by simply clicking the stop button.

Please note that you should only specify tag and notebook names that already exist in your Evernote. If they do not exists, the email will get saved in your default Evernote notebook.

Alternate options

You can also send emails from your Gmail account manually or use external services like Zaiper or IFTTT to automate the task of creating notes in Evernote from your Gmail inbox. Thanks to all the wonderful tools available for us in the 21st century to make our lives easier, better, productive and more meaningful.
