Mac Gems: Inky offers a fresh, human take on email
Posted 01 February 2013 - 10:10 AM
If that's a fair appraisal of the situation, then: has Macworld gone mad? Are you seriously proposing it's a good idea to relinquish all your email login details to a bunch of complete strangers just to gain a few seconds the next time you set up your mail client?

We're working in particular on improving:
- Inky's performance (load times, etc.).
- Inky's native OS support (as of today's upgrade we use native scrolling, for example).
We'll have a new version in a few weeks that delivers better Retina support and better OS X support for languages other than English as well.

Are you *seriously* proposing I "relinquish" "all" my login details to a *bunch of complete strangers*? Have you *gone mad*?
Look--this is an email aggregating service. The review pointed out that there were privacy issues. Presumably the reader can decide for himself about those, as well as about the utility of a service that's a little too much about self-promotion, which the article also noted.
If you're so worried, what are you doing with an email client at all? You should be using webmail that requires an SSL login, such as Hushmail, where your emails can be easily anonymized. And what about the *complete strangers* at your ISP's DNS resolver who can just peer into your traffic over the POP and SMTP ports?
I suggest you get a VPN to log in to Hushmail, too.
