Previous versions of Nylas Mail (formerly Nylas N1) exclusively used the Nylas Cloud to sync mail, calendar, and contacts. This strategy allowed us to innovate quickly on our core sync technology while building on a modern API.
In the past several months, we redesigned the sync engine in Nylas Basic from the ground-up. Its now powered by a hybrid sync engine that connects directly to your mail provider (Gmail, Office365, Fastmail, etc.). Some featuressuch as open/link tracking, snoozing, and remindersstill require cloud operations, but the large majority of sync operations no longer require backend services.
This was a huge undertaking with thousands upon thousands of lines of code modified and added. Were excited to share more details soon on our engineering blog. If youd like to be notified, you can subscribe to our newsletter here.
Yep! You can find the code on GitHub, and its still GPL.
Were still working out a few bugs in the Windows and Linux builds. Theyll be ready in a couple weeks.
After your free year expires, youll be upgraded to the standard Nylas Pro subscription at $12 per month, billed annually. (You can of course downgrade any time before this and switch to Nylas Basic, which is free.)
Todays release supports Gmail/G Suite, Office365, Yahoo! Mail, iCloud, and FastMail.
We provide two great platforms for integrating your app with email, calendar, and contacts:
