|Short description=The extensible, open source mail client
|Full description=Beautiful inside and out.
N1 is designed to be friendly, with an emphasis on clean typography, subtle drop shadows, and delightful buttons. When you use N1, things feel familiar with nothing out of place. It's just the way things should be.
All platforms and providers.
N1 is compatible with hundreds of email providers, including Gmail, Yahoo, iCloud, Microsoft Exchange, and more. It's a desktop app that can run offline, and feels great on Mac, Windows, and Linux. N1 is for everyone.
Developers welcome.
N1 is designed for extensibility, and includes a JavaScript plugin architecture that enables anyone to create powerful new features. Plugins can add buttons, sidebars, composer elements, or remix the entire UI. And if plugins aren't enough, the N1 codebase is also open source free software. Developers, start your engines.
What can you build on top of N1?
The N1 plugin system makes it easy to add new buttons, sidebars, and other functionality to the app. See the full example plugins list for some inspiration!
Is N1 open source?
Yes, N1 is open source free software, licensed under GPLv3. See the GitHub page for more details.
Why doesn’t this connect directly via IMAP & SMTP?
One of the key reasons we were able to develop this app quickly was that it uses the Nylas Platform APIs, powered by our open source sync engine. This moves the complexity of mailsync to the server infrastructure. N1 is compatible with the same providers as the Nylas Platform, including Gmail, Yahoo, iCloud, Microsoft Exchange, and hundreds of others.
Why is search sometimes slow?
Search is powered by the backend IMAP/ActiveSync search APIs. These are unfortunately sometimes slow. If N1 is able to auto-suggest a thread, you may be able to jump to it faster. We're working on better solutions here, too.
What is bundled in the N1 download, but not the GitHub repo?
There are some files in N1 that we can not redistribute under the a GPL license, including the app’s typeface and sounds. The compiled N1 binary includes these assets as well as a few packages for connecting to the hosted Nylas Platform.
How secure are plugins built on N1?
We recommend only installing plugins that have been created by developers you trust. N1 is an extremely flexible platform and does not currently contain access control levels on a plugin-by-plugin basis. (Want to help us work on it? Email jobs@nylas.com!)
Why is the download so big?
That’s Node (V8) and Electron (Chromium and all its dependencies) for you! Should this be a shared library? Yes we hope eventually!
How secure is your hosted API platform that powers N1?
We take security extremely seriously. See the Nylas Platform security page for more details: https://nylas.com/security
I don’t trust anyone with my email. Can I run N1 and the API server myself?
Yes! See the README for full instructions on setting up the sync engine, API, and N1 on your local machine. You can run everything locally and even develop plugins without using a single Nylas Platform service.
After a linked email account is removed, does Nylas keep the contents of all my synced emails in its database or backups?
After an account is unlinked, its data is queued for removal from our cloud infrastruture and will be deleted within 60 days. For accounts that require immediate deletion, please contact support@nylas.com.
How does Nylas make money?
Nylas is building a next-generation email platform, and makes money by providing infrastructure and services. You can see a few of our customers on the Use Cases page.
Note that Nylas is not an advertising company. We don’t sell user data or provide “personalized” ads, and we have no plans to do so.
How is a N1 plugin different from Gmail.js or other Chrome Extensions?
Some developers have been able to extend Gmail’s interface by creating Chrome Extensions that inject new DOM nodes. This has serious drawbacks, since it only works with Gmail, it only works with Chrome, and it requires constantly reverse-engineering the minified Gmail JavaScript code.
Plugins in N1 are built on fully-supported APIs that are end-to-end tested. It’s an actual development platform with libraries, tests, UI components, and more. Check out the docs for more details.
Who is the team behind this?
N1 is created by Nylas: a small team of engineers and designers based in San Francisco.
N1 is cool. Are you hiring?
Of course! :) See our jobs page or email hello@nylas.com.

So, with Delta Chat you get the ease of well-known messengers with the reach of email. Moreover, you’re independent from other companies or services - as your data are not related to Delta Chat, you won’t even add new dependencies here.
Elm is an interactive screen-oriented mail reader that needed no documentation for the casual user, but was still powerful enough and sophisticated enough for a mail expert. It is superseeded by mutt, in the view of many people. The package name stands for Electronic Mail. It was one of the most common mail readers of its time.
Gnome Heckert gnu.tiny.png
GNOME is an easy and elegant desktop environment. It is designed to put you in control and bring freedom to everybody. GNOME is developed by the GNOME community, a diverse, international group of contributors that is supported by an independent, non-profit foundation. The GNOME project has a tradition of high-quality interface design which has been strongly influenced by usability principles and practice. GNOME software is available in a large number of spoken languages, and the project aims to ensure that its software is usable for everyone, including people with disabilities.
GNUS (Gnus Network User Services) is an Emacs package primarily designed for reading and posting Usenet news. It can also be used to read and respond to messages from a number of other sources—email, remote directories, digests, and so on. This package provides a full-featured, robust, well-documented mail/news client in Emacs. Gnus is maintained as part of GNU Emacs.
Icedove is the rebranding of Mozilla Thunderbird by the Debian Project. Icedove supports different mail accounts (POP, IMAP, Gmail), has an integrated learning Spam filter, and offers easy organization of mails with tagging and virtual folders. Also, more features can be added by installing extensions. The goal of Icedove is to produce a cross platform standalone mail application using the XUL user interface language. Icedove has IRC support, and the calendar extension Mozilla Lightning is now installed by default.
MH-E offers the functionality of MH, the visual orientation and simplicity of use of a GUI, and full integration with Emacs and XEmacs, including thorough configuration and online help. MH-E lets users read and process mail very quickly: many commands are single characters; completion and smart defaults are used for folder names and aliases. With MH-E you compose outgoing messages in Emacs. This is a big plus for Emacs users, but even non-Emacs users have been known to use MH-E after only learning the most basic cursor motion commands. Additional features include:
  • attractive text rendering with font lock
  • composition and display of MIME body parts
  • display of images and HTML within the Emacs frame
  • folder browsing with speedbar
  • threading
  • ticking messages
  • lightning-fast full-text indexed searches of all of your email
  • virtual folders to view ticked and unseen messages, search results
  • multiple personalities
  • signing and encrypting
  • spam filter interaction
  • XFace, Face, X-Image-URL header field support with picons

Mailpile is an email client with a familiar web interface. It provides typical read, write, organise and search tools, as well as OpenPGP signatures and encryption when sending email. Additionally your email and search indexes are encrypted in the event that your machine is stolen. You can install Mailpile on your own machine or a remote machine, and access it via your browser either way, but note that it is an email client (MUA) not an email server (MTA). You will still require an account on an email server.
