So everything perfect has to come to an end, they just announced Nylas Pro, for 9$ per month for a non hosted email service, and with the rest of the email clients out there for free is kind of risky.

I think 1$ per month with the tracking features it would it be great, and willing to pay for it, they reply to my comment in twitter :

Just because this software is open source doesn't mean it's secure. Nylas stores all your passwords and emails on their own servers by default in order to run their sync engine. What a retarded concept.

N1 does not actually talk to IMAP/SMTP servers itself. It only talks to the "Nylas Sync Engine", which is their backend API, running on AWS. What this means to you is that by setting up your email account in N1, you're actually handing over your credentials to their backend, which will then talk to your mail service provider on your behalf. This is only briefly mentioned on their FAQ page, and you could easily miss it even if you read it; it is never clearly stated on either the N1 homepage, on its download page, or in the app itself.

about Nylas N1 and Geary Jan 2016

good interface, although a bit sluggish on older hardware (it's actually based on github's atom)
will probably get even better
works like geary, but has more options
