Copy Mail messages to Evernote via AppleScript
Authored by: Veritrope on Apr 28, '09 12:23:20PM
I would *love* for there to be linkage between the two so that there would be a link to an authoritative copy -- I tried to make it happen and it's clearly the preferable scenario -- but Evernote can't do that...at least, not yet (although I think there are indications that it's on the way).

Not sure if you're interested, but if you want to get into the more technical aspects of the things I tried in an attempt to create a link, let's move the conversation over to the script's page on Veritrope. Maybe you (or another Scripting Guru) could help us make that happen!

As written, the way that I think about this script (and the others for NNW, Entourage, etc.) is that it's like sticking a photocopy in a file folder. It's not giving you an "authoritative copy", but it's giving you a snapshot of something at a moment in time. For many people, this is all they need. Combine that with Evernote's ability to assemble and catalog information from many different sources inside it's web-accessible platform and I think the result more than makes up for its current limitations.

Kind Regards,

Justin

P.S. Good luck with those seeds!
