Well, the Nylas engine doesn’t provide any authentication by default. It just assumes if you enter the username correctly, the account is yours.

Which makes it hard to self-host without building a different auth system around it.

What I mean is, Nylas takes care of asking for and storing the user's credentials to their email account(s), all you need to store is the token that accesses the Nylas API.
