start.me now supports @Yahoo, @AOL and @3 Others

Do you like to see your latest e-mails on your start page? Good news! As of today, our e-mail widget supports several new e-mail providers:

  • GMail (was already supported)
  • Outlook.com / Hotmail (new)
  • Yahoo (new)
  • AOL (new)
  • Yandex (new)
  • Mail.ru (new)
  • Zoho (new)

Privacy

start.me doesn’t store, read or use any of your e-mails. Our e-mail widget fetches your e-mail directly from one of the following two API’s:

1. GMail API

Users of GMAIL can check their privacy policy at https://www.gmail.com/intl/en_us/mail/help/terms.html

2. Context.io API (for all other e-mail providers)

Context.IO anonymizes your e-mail content and uses it commercially to improve spam filters, detect and help stop phishing attacks, and help companies adopt best practices.

All personal information (such as names, email addresses, and postal addresses) is removed. No part of the anonymized data can be traced to a specific email account.
