Would you trust a 3rd party email app with your login details? Say cloudmagic? Thanks

If it potentially gives access to your emails and mailserver to a third party, then no I wouldn't trust it. I am surprised how many permissions some people give to some of these systems, perhaps they don't understand what they are doing.

No dont do it. Google and many other services provide a permissions system whereby they grant a certain app access to specific data (as agreed to you by you on the form) for a certain period of time. I think they issue a unique key to the app for this. Much safer.

I've used cloudmagic for quite a while and would never go back. I wouldn't want to give my details to other apps in the same way I do with cm. I've never been spammed or felt my info was bring used in the wrong way. I guess its a personal choice.
