Can the Mailbird team read my mails? We guarantee you that Mailbird can not ever read any of your emails, nor see your attachments, account passwords or anything else. Mailbird works as a local client on your computer, and all sensitive data, such as emails, folders, contacts, attachments, account details etc. is…
