Mailbird has many functions that Outlook has at a fraction of the cost. It syncs to Google calendar, Todoist, Facebook and LinkedIn. I can also use Mailbird to receive and send email from my Gmail accounts.

Great support. Great email client.

The support folks at Mailbird are brilliant. First, they listen. If there is something I need to know, they tell me. If there is a flaw in the product, they pass it on to developers. (There aren't many. It's a pretty darn good email client, with a lot of extra social media integrations.)
