It’s easy to use.
First, get the script from veritrope.
Like all Apple Mail-related scripts, the best place to store it is in your ~/Library/Scripts/Applications/Mail folder, so that it appears at the top of the AppleScript menu when mail.app is open.
Then find the email that you want to save into Evernote, highlight it and click the AppleScript menu on the right of your menubar:
The script grabs the email and shunts into Evernote. It loads the message first into Evernote’s Desktop app from which it syncs up automatically.
The script also presents a dialogue so that you can tag the email and select where to store it:
Chosing the “Select notebook from list” options retrieves a list of your existing notebook and also offers you the option to create a new notebook on the fly.
A nice Growl alert lets you know when it’s done.
The end result is a new Evernote note, nicely tagged-up and with a hyperlink back to the original message in mail.app:
Of course, it all goes much faster if you fire the script with a trigger in Quicksilver or set a keyboard shortcut for it with a utility like Daniel Jalkut’s excellent FastScripts .
veritrope also provides a fistful of applescripts for integrating Evernote with other popular apps like Yojimbo, NeetNewsWire, MacJournal, DEVONThink, even (of all things) Entourage.
