Can I customize my incoming Evernote email address so that it's easier to remember?

No. Your incoming email address can be reset from time to time as a safety precaution, but you cannot customize it with a specific address.

The email address you use to send notes to Evernote is automatically generated and is only intended for your personal use. It has been designed to prevent unauthorized people from easily remembering and using it to send content to your Evernote account.

For quick access to your Evernote incoming email address, simply save it to your contacts in your email application, as you would any other contact. Create a new contact using your incoming email address and name it "Send to Evernote" or "To Evernote", for example. Next time you'd like to save or forward an email to Evernote, select the contact from your email list.
