email-logoSometimes you may get an email that you want to save for future reference. How do you do this? There are a few different ways to do this, depending on the email client you use. There are also ways you can save emails offline. In this post I’ll discuss the different ways  you can save important email messages. 

Forward Important Emails to Evernote 

If you have emails you want to save offline, one of the best places to save them is in Evernote. If you don’t have an Evernote account, I highly suggest signing up for one, especially if you do a lot of web research and/or have a lot of emails you want to save. To find out more about Evernote you can check out these posts I’ve written about it.

Saving Emails In Yahoo 

If you want to save certain emails on Yahoo’s server, the best way to go about it is to create a folder for them. Creating a folder is fairly easy, all you have to do is click on the folder icon next to the folders dropdown and give the folder a name.  If you want to you can also create filters so that emails from certain email addresses or with certain subject lines go to your folders. You do this by clicking on the gear icon and choosing “Settings,” then click on “Filters.”  Click on the “Add” button, give the filter a name and fill in the information about what emails should go into that folder.

Saving Emails in Inbox 

The best way I’ve found to save Google Inbox emails is to first create a filter for the message, then add the message to the filter. If you want to print or save a PDF copy of it, you can go to the filter, choose the message, then right click on it and choose “Print” or “Save” – be aware that if you do this you may have one or two extra pages.

These are the best ways I’ve found to save important email messages. If you have other methods you use to save your important email messages, please feel free to comment below.
