N1 is an open source desktop email client by Nylas known for its emphasis on user-contributed extensions.


N1 is an open source desktop email client. It is compatible with multiple Gmail, Yahoo, Microsoft Exchange, and IMAP accounts, and is cross-platform on Linux, OS X, and Windows. The application accommodates user-written plugins. It has several layout styles in single or double panels, and has fullscreen and offline modes.[1] By default, its mail sync functions are processed in a cloud owned by Nylas, the company responsible for the project.[2] N1 added a unified inbox in February 2016[3] and PGP encryption support in June 2016[4]


At the beginning of 2016, Macworld wrote that the software looked promising and had a better chance of enduring longer than past software—such as Sparrow and Mailbox—due to its open source license.[5] The Next Web highly praised N1's extensions features and wrote that it could become for email what Google Chrome is to web browsing.[6] N1 was the third most popular email desktop client among AppleInsider readers as of January 2016.[7]
