Email, calendar and contact sync advice
I hope you are all well.
I am hoping to get some advice regarding email, calendar and contact synchronisation on my UT phone.
I am currently using my gmail for the contact sync but I am planning on leaving google and set up an email address with a company has some morals.
What I need is to be able to sync my contacts and access my emails and calendar on my UT phone. In the contact sync the only option for an email provider seems to be for google.
Can anyone provide any recommendations where I can get these all working on my UT phone with a different (preferably free) email provider?

Hi @ko ,
What I would do (and what I did) is to use Nextcloud to sync your data.
The "Calendar" app is able to sync with Nextcloud and it works fine.
For contacts, in my experience you don't change them so often, so I make a manual backup using VCF format and I back it up using my nextcloud account.
To switch from google, you can simply export your contact list as VCF and import it to Nextcloud, it's fast and easy.
For email services, I use protonmail and disroot.
On UT I set my IMAP account in Dekko2 which works fine for me.
Everything sync very well but contacts. I'm sure you will find your way to sync calendars and data with nextcloud.
To sync your contacts, several attempt have been donc but none is working smoothly so far.
Here are the page to look at to try syncing your contacts :
if you manage to make it work, please share the way to success.
Thank you for your reply.
I will try with the solution you are using.
Are you using the ubsync app to sync your files?
I may have to go back to my android phone temporarily as the UT phone (nexus 5) started entering some digits on the emergency dialler by iteself while it was locked and on charge. I only realised due to the dialpad sounds - something strange going on there. Should I report this as a bug?
I will try the solution suggested by AppLee but I am hoping to find a solution which does the sync in the background without me worring about it.
I will post what I find here.

@ko I use UBsync for my files.
But the Calendar app uses the account system of UT. It's all native.
Thank you - I will try and get this set up in the next few days.
