New LinkedIn service wants to proxy all your email

http://j.mp/1ceCtUQ  (LinkedIn)

  "Our key insight was this: we cannot extend the mail client, but we can
   add information to the messages themselves. One way to do this would
   be to modify the messages on the server - but then the modification
   would appear on all your clients, both desktop and mobile. That would
   not be what users want.  Instead, we can add information to messages
   by using a proxy server."

The thought of routing all my email through a LinkedIn proxy seems
more like a nightmare than a service.
