  1. *Unlimited* Disposable Email Aliases

    Startmail explains it perfectly. They offer unlimited disposable aliases, which expire within a given amount of time. They also offer custom aliases which can be saved and used indefinitely.

    It is the disposable alias which will help protect privacy, when submiting an email to an untrusted recipient. After all, how much privacy do we have if our fixed emails become the foundation for building and selling our marketing profiles, just as is done by gmail. We limit personal activity virtual trails by disposing of aliases for casual uses. But, unlike custom aliases, which build on our identifiable original email address,…

    • When sending/reading an email show if the email was sent/received securely

      Gmail has this feature where we can see if it's secure or not.

      • Being able to create custom folders

        You seem to believe that the ability to add folders is "Completed" by telling people to use labels. Color labels just don't cut it.

        All the emails will still reside in my inbox or archive. Every other internet email service offers the option to create custom folders, why not Protonmail? This issue has come up again and again from the start.

        • X-notifier Script for ProtonMail for Firefox?

          X-notifier is a Firefox plugin that alerts you to new email arrivals in multiple webmail accounts. The plugin already works with many popular webmail services. For new email services, an additional script must be made.

          This is the X-notifier Firefox plugin page: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/xnotifier/

          This is the current list of addon scripts: http://xnotifier.tobwithu.com/scripts.php

          This is the request page for a ProtonMail script to be added to X-notifier: http://xnotifier.tobwithu.com/dp/node/3407

          Could ProtonMail staff collaborate on creating a script?

          Or could someone reading this with the ability to create scripts help make one to add functionality for ProtonMail?

          This would also help those interested…

          • Can we short the "protonmail" name?

            Just like when Google started with the Gmail service, back then it was @googlemail, which is not so good compared with the short @gmail name.
            What if ProtonMail stars something like "@pmail.com"?

            • No Data Retention, no logs, and more transparency.

              Things that should have been here.

              Protonmail needs to be more transparent in the same way as it is expressively transparent, when it says that its service is hosted in Switzerland.

              Why?

              There are things we should not ask to do as we do here on this list, ask for encrypted data where it should already have, major keys etc.

              These things should already be in place and not be something on demand.

              Protonmail has an easier to use interface, but that does not mean it's not as accurate in privacy as it should be.

              • Add option to send a Delivery failed email

                Add option to possibly send a delivery failed email to received emails. This would be really a great option for us to get rid of some senders.

                    • Yubikey as a second factor authentification

                      That would be good to integrate a protection with Yubikey for the 2 factor authentification. https://www.yubico.com/
                      Google already uses this feature for the mailbox. Facebook also accepts yubikey as the 2nd authentication factor.
                      I think that as a safety-conscious company, you should make your services compatible with yubikey.

                      • idea to stop fishing site

                        Add a new functionnality where in the settings you can edit a sentence that will be stored encrypted.
                        It will only be decrypted and shown to you after your enter your login password but BEFORE you enter the mailbox password.
                        This way if the network is compromised and you end up on a protonmail fishing site, you will only have given the login password and NOT the mailbox password.
                        This will be especially helpfull when a tor address will be made available.

                        • Protonmail is too expensive. Offer the option to buy features for life

                          I find paying 4 euros per month too expensive.
                          I would suggest adding the possibility to buy more features like adding more addresses, more filters rules or more GB for life.

                          • Dark Mail Alliance Collaboration

                            PGP (which I refer to as Email 2.0), is great for sending encrypted messages. One of the popular requests here on Uservoice is for metadata to be encrypted in transit as well. The problem with the PGP protocol though, is that it can't encrypt the subject header, to/from/cc/bcc fields, or other metadata. PGP also can't do forward-secrecy, and if the one of the users private key is compromised, an eavesdropper can read all previous and future correspondence, instead of just future correspondence.

                            Enter the Dark Mail Alliance, a group of representatives from email & privacy companies working on creating new,…

                            • The ability to search the contents of emails, not just the Subject

                              It is a deal killer for business use to not be able to search the contents of emails Vs just subject titles. Combine that with the TERRIBLE conversation thread that will not open ALL messages at the same time and PM may be doing great engineering but poor client business development.

                                  • Temporarily store 2-step verification

                                    As it’s already (welcome) extra work to enter two passwords, could 2-step verification be implemented so that known devices would only need to be verified again every 30 days or so?

                                    At the moment, with 2-step verification enabled, even a page reload triggers triple authentication, which makes the added security a poor experience.

                                    • Show the first lines of the Body in Conversation View

                                      Conversation view should display the first lines of the body to be useful.

                                      When you have more than 3-4 emails in the same conversation, it becomes really hard to find anything inside. The more you have, the more useless becomes conversation view, when it should be the opposite. It should be useful when you have 20 or 30 (or more) replies on the same subject/conversation.

                                      Gmail shows the first words of the body of the message between the sender and the date, and that makes all the difference.

                                      On a many-email conversation you can have a look and scroll down…

                                          I would like to support Protonmail development with premium subscription. Current plans are however too expensive for basic users.
                                          I would only need basic functionality, with possibility to create email aliases.

                                          Or the other way around, give users possibility to opt out some current features from premium subscription with lesser money.
