Save emails directly to OneNote with Outlook.com

Microsoft seems to have quietly up the ante in their service integrations, by allowing users of Outlook.com to save emails directly to their OneNote notebooks. The new feature was spotted reader Nicola (thanks for the tip!), who also said that it presumably was rolled out this morning. By right click on any email in Outlook.com, you will be presented with a new option in the drop-down menu called “Save to OneNote”.

The new “Save to OneNote” option.

Choosing the option will open a popup, in which you can choose the notebook and section you want to save the email in. The content of the email will then be available for your viewing pleasure in OneNote, at which you can have a quick look on OneNote Online by clicking on the notification at the bottom of the screen.

It should be noted that while I have seen and used the feature successfully, another WinBeta staffer has reported to not yet see this in his account, suggesting that Microsoft may just be testing the feature for some users, and it’s not confirmed whether it will be released generally. Nevertheless, the feature will definitely prove helpful for OneNote users on Outlook.com in backing up their emails.
