Emailing to Diigo – my new best friend

I often review articles using my iPad. If I want to keep an article, I try to save it in Diigo. However, I am not happy with iPad tools used for saving to Diigo. I would like to introduce you to my new friend.

Save links and notes to Diigo by email.

Now when I find a great article, I can email it to my Diigo account. This will save me time and energy as I collect worthwhile links.

Finding your Diigo Email address

  1. Go to https://www.diigo.com/tools, ensure that you are logged in.
  2. Click on the Save by Email link.
  3. Add your Diigo email address as a contact to all your email programs.

Sending links to Diigo

The Diigo instructions explain that you can tag an entry by including tags to the end of your subject in this format:

Title of bookmark/note #Tag1 #Tag2

It is important to note that if the first line is a URL, then it will be saved as a bookmark. The rest of the email content will be saved as description.
If the first line is not a URL, it will be saved as a note.
