Just as a matter of curiosity, since you are using it for everything else, why aren’t you using Outlook for the last category?  Its a click of a button with a browser plugin to send webpages as emails.  Why not make it all in one?  What are the advantage of Evernote?

Todo: Rainlendar, synced with Remember the Milk and Thunderbird/Lightning
Email: Thunderbird
Calendar: Rainlendar, synced with Lightning and Google Calendar
Notes, research, web clippings: Local Website Archive, Clipcache Pro, Notezilla, ConnectedText
Writing: WriteMonkey, MS Word 2003, PageFour

Rainlendar (http://www.rainlendar.net) has been my best discovery this year. It sits permanently on my desktop (it has a “desktop mode”, if that makes sense, and I had wanted a powerful desktop calendar for some time). The paid version adds sharing networked calendars, Outlook and Google Calendar support.

Using iCalendar (.ics) files, Rainlendar seamlessly syncs with a variety of programs and online services (see my examples above - for the programs I use, all syncs are bi-directional). I’ve only been using Rainlendar for a month or so, but I’ve never had a sync issue with it, and Rainlendar maintains multiple backups in any case.

I have become so enthusiastic about the program that I even created my own (sober, minimalist) skin for it—many of the available skins are a bit…funky.

Here are my choices:

Todo: Chaos Intellect
Email: Windows Live Mail
Calendar: Chaos Intellect
Research and web clippings: WebResearch Pro & Evernote
Outlining: MyNotesKeeper & MyInfo (haven’t yet decided)
Notes and first drafts: ConnectedText
Writing (final drafts): ConnectedText & Word 2007

But I also own MyBase, TreePad, Surfulater, and ZuluPad Pro. Yes, I’m a PIM-junkie
