    Everyone seems to be looking for alternatives after the service from Google was suspended.
    Same as you I tried different programs and plugins etc.

    In the end I stuck with an Outlook plug-in called EVO Collaborator for Outlook. This actually allows me to sync not only to Gmail but also iCloud if I want. Which is pretty convenient.

    HLpjI want to thank Sara here, she has won my business and I'll be posting my experience to you and others.
    My old computer crashed days ago. I had to buy a new computer. It costed me much.
    My budget was not much. To purchase a Windows 7 Ultimate Key from MS was not enough. Then I went to Tomshardware, and one guy recommended Windows10Keysale.com to me. Their price did attract me. So I decided to try after several emails to Sara. She was very patient and answered clearly to all my questions. I receved the key immediately after I sent 35 bucks. It worked perfectly. I was very very satisfied.
    I'll be buying from Windows10Keysale.com from now on as well.HLpj
