Credits

The project has become a weird mix of both Gmailinator by Michael Lai and Nostalgy-4-Mail.app by Hajo Nils Krabbenhöft and later Marcin Pyla. I somewhat merged both projects to my preferences and rewrote parts of it to be compatible with later versions of Apple's Mail.app.

Finally, this project could not have been maintained by me done without the invaluable class-dump by Steve Nygard.
