    FAQs

    • How does DarwinMail work?

      So what happens exactly is:

      1. The user logs into DarwinMail.app,
      2. DarwinMail makes a login request to Google's servers,
      3. Google logs the user in,
      4. DarwinMail asks for the users emails at which point this data is rendered in the user's browser.

      None of this email data is stored on DarwinMail's servers. There is no need! Think of all the space it would take up and the time that would be spent retrieving the data.

      Google's API & servers do the heavy lifting. DarwinMail allows you to view your emails just like Inbox, and hopefully provides (or will soon provide) the same kind of functionality :)

      How does DarwinMail technically work?

      The follwing is taken straight from Google's documentation, describing the exact process.

      This document explains how to implement OAuth 2.0 authorization to access Google APIs from a JavaScript web application. OAuth 2.0 allows users to share specific data with an application while keeping their usernames, passwords, and other information private. For example, an application can use OAuth 2.0 to obtain permission from users to store files in their Google Drives.

      This OAuth 2.0 flow is called the implicit grant flow. It is designed for applications that access APIs only while the user is present at the application. These applications are not able to store confidential information.

      In this flow, your app opens a Google URL that uses query parameters to identify your app and the type of API access that the app requires. You can open the URL in the current browser window or a popup. The user can authenticate with Google and grant the requested permissions. Google then redirects the user back to your app. The redirect includes an access token, which your app verifies and then uses to make API requests.

      Please feel free to check out the official documentation from Google for further reading.

    • What data do you access about me?

      WE NEVER store any email data that belongs to you. Google has verified our compliance via a lengthy audit!

      • Manage mailbox labels — this allows DarwinMail to add and remove labels (inbox, snoozed, spam, etc) to your emails.
      • Manage your sensitive mail settings — this allows DarwinMail to update settings such as your forwarding address and aliases.
      • Manage you basic mail settings — this allows DarwinMail to update settings such as your signature and out of office reply.
      • View and modify but not delete your email — this allows DarwinMail to create your email (when you use the compose functionality), modify your email, and send your email (when you click the send button). This also allows you to update and save drafts.

      Please feel free to check out the official documentation from Google for further reading.

      Do you store our access tokens on your server?

      We do not store the access tokens on our servers! We simply authenticate the user with Gmail on initial page load, then check that the user is authenticated on every subsequent load. All of this is done in your browser. There is no need for DarwinMail to store your access token.

    • Why would we use DarwinMail over competitors?

      WE NEVER store any email data that belongs to you.

      • We will not sell your data, abuse our power or ignore your requests...
      • Because we respect your privacy.
      • Your privacy is important. Darwin will never record or distribute your personal data to any third parties.
      • We understand that the product can only become great if each & every suggestion is listened to.
      • We have a public roadmap and open lines of communication.
      • The primary focus of DarwinMail is to help you be productive. Each and every change is made for that sole reason.

      Please feel free to check out our roadmap.

    • Are you verified & authenticated?

      Yes, DarwinMail is verified by Google!

      What does that mean?

      DarwinMail basically sits on top of Google's servers and displays the data in the same manner (and in time using the exact same features + more) as Inbox did.

      Darwin does not store any of your email data whatsoever. In fact, if it did, Google would have asked me to audit the tool - but they instead granted me Google verification. It took them almost a month to break down DarwinMail and make sure it did not store any user email data.

      If you have any questions on the verification process, please ask me! Or look here and here at the official Google documentation.

    • What browsers do you support?

      We currently support several browsers. DarwinMail has been tested on the latest versions of Chrome (76), Firefox (68) & Opera (58). But we are constantly making improvements to DarwinMail.

      If you would like to make a suggestion of your own, please give us feedback.

    • Do you plan on building mobile apps?

      Yes, absolutely! Thank you for asking.

      I'm currently working on the web app. With our Product Hunt release, our being on the front page of Hacker News, and all the suggestions and feedback coming in, I should have enough information to make DarwinMail extremely stable.

      After it has achieved this stability, I will create mobile apps.

      For the moment, I have added meta tags to the header of each page on DarwinMail.app, which will allow you to save the web app icon to your phones homescreen, so it looks just like an app.

    • I have a suggestion! No, wait, I have a bug!

      Thank you so much for your interest in DarwinMail.

      If you want to help us debug the issue - please..

      1. Right click -> press inspect -> click the Console button... As described here
      2. Then tell us what messages you see logged (2. showThreads start.. etc - if any!) (better yet - screenshot?)
      3. We will be able to figure out your issue then!

      PS: If your issue is that you're not seing your snoozed emails/reminders from gmail in DarwinMail that is because Google does not allow access to their snoozed items - so I have to create a new label for Darwin Mail!

      Let us know what feature you would like implemented or what bug you have found!
