No cloud server:
Several mail apps are cloud based.
They run their own servers, which connect to the actual mail servers, collect your messages on their own servers (for some duration of time), and then push messages from there to the device.
So your messages are stored somewhere else (for some duration of time). It’s one more place that stores your messages and possibly your accounts’ passwords.
Nine is not cloud based. It only stores your accounts’ passwords on the actual device. It only connects to the actual mail servers. It only stores your messages on the device.
Nine never passes user logins to 9Folders and 9Folders has no access to that information.
