    It is nice that Windows 10 has this already built-in. What about Outlook? Even though Outlook has iCloud Control Panel, it somehow has some weakness that you can not assign iCloud folder as your Outlook default folder. With EVO Collaborator for Outlook add-in, I can use any Outlook folder other than iCloud folder created by iCloud Control Panel itself. Then, I can use it as a default folder so entries will be automatically placed in the folder after I create and save them. I recommend you to use EVO Collaborator for Outlook, which I have been using it for years and it is quite good.
