Saving Outlook Email to Evernote Not Working?


When clicking the Evernote icon in Outlook the add in asks me to subscribe or submit my credentials. The app then opens a IE 11 screen where I select my details. Directs to MS Edge and signs me in. However in OUtlook the Evernote window is not activated. The wheel keeps on spinning. The moment I close the IE11 window the Evernote app closes. It looks that the Clipper in OUtlook is not connecting to Evernote. 

From the technical support suggestions on the web I learned that the Evernote ADD IN under OUtlook must be checked. The add in is not available in this list. Then the suggestion is to reinstall the complete Evernote application? Where to me it is simply a connecting problem due to the recent frequent updates of Evernote?
