Better tools for future integration

Okay, I do not want to start a discussion on MSFT Outlook.com’s send button looks better than GMAIL’s version and so on. What I like to know from people that are hopefully smarter and more in tune with all the latest integration is what is a better tool for MAIL/CALENDAR/STORAGE? A little background to help you with your answers: Long time technology business person and hobbyist. I used to work at Bell Labs back in the 70’s with the cast of characters that invented UNIX. I do a great deal of charity IT work with Linux, Windows, Mac systems refurb/refresh/install/implementation. So bottom line is that I am quite tech literate.

Currently today I have a love / hate relationship with Outlook.com and GMAIL. I have accounts for both services, although I hate having a Fibonacci code attached to my Gmail account name :>))

I hate the contacts duplication or deletion issues I experience almost every day with Outlook.com. I love the increased integration with OneDrive, Paypal, Uber, Wunderlist and others. I like Google’s new apps / services such as Trips, Allo, Duo and others much to Snowden’s chagrin. 

Is it just a po-tay-toe or po-tah-toe discussion at this time or are their legitimate reasons to further hitch your wagon to one of these services? I can’t see another Yahoo event happening with either but who knows.

What are your thoughts?

    <p>Hi,</p>
    <p>I’ve found that using Gmail with <a href="http://www.emclient.com">eM Client</a>&nbsp;is very stable in Windows 10. For mobile (Android 5.1), I use AquaMail not Gmail. I want to see all accounts (I have three, all Gmail) at once. I don’t use said integrations; I’m looking for stability.</p>
    <p>For storage, I use <a href="https://mega.co.nz">MEGA</a&gt;. They offer 50 GB for free, Firefox, Chrome, Nautilus (Linux file manager) Windows, Mac, Android and iOS integration. Very solid and better for just working than Google Drive or OneDrive.</p>
