  2. HTML composition mode requires CREATE LINK function

    Proton Mail's web mail composition window's HTML mode currently CANNOT create an e-mail with URL links because while in HTML mode, there's no CREATE LINK function in the editor's toolbar. What would be smarter is that the editor should AUTOMATICALLY detect URL links (which may have prefixes such as HTTP or HTTPS, etc) and AUTOMATICALLY create URL links in the HTML page.

    Currently there's no way to create clickable links in HTML mode mail composition and the user must switch to plain text mode. However, under many circumstances (such as replying to an e-mail) other than composition a new e-mail…

  3. Login with mobile TAN

    there should be an option to send a mobile tan (text message) to a mobile phone number. the login is only possible with the login password AND the sent mobile tan.

    it is an additional security step and with this option you are automatically informed if someone else wants to log in your email account

  4. Messages "Saving..." and "Saved to Drafts" should not move the writing box

    When the messages "Saving..." and "Saved to Drafts" appear and dissapear, they move down and up the tools bar and the writing box. I think this is a bit annoying. It would be better if these messages appear in the bottom of the screen or if they had a proper place.

    Other suggestion: the left row (Proton Mail logo, Compose, Inbox, Drafts, etc) could be narrower and to leave more room for the mailing frame.

  6. Remove the limmit for attachments

    I do not understand that attachments are limited to 15 MB. It will be a huge improvement to remove the limit so we are able to sent larger (for example PDF) files.

  7. On your web site you could have a better explanation of how Proton Mail works.

    The current explanation of how Proton Mail works that is on your web site may be fine for people who already understand it, but for others it amounts to little more than "trust us." I am hardly a dummy (I served out my indeterminate sentence in a world-class graduate school), but the whole thing is clear as mud to me. I never understood PGP in its previous incarnations either. A clear exposition of how PM works would make it more popular, I am sure.

  8. Increase polling frequency for new messages

    Most mail services poll for new mail at regular intervals. i.e., I send a new message to my gmail account, and it is visible in gmail generally in 15-120s.

    With Protonmail, I waited for over half an hour with no updates. A page refresh brings up new messages, but of course this isn't particularly convenient.

    Auto-mated polling with a higher frequency should address this.

  9. Expiry should not be indicated and screen capture ability disabled

    I suggest a recipient should not be able to see that the e-mail has a expiry time.Seeing that there is an expiry time may cause the recipient to forward the e-mail or take a screen shot of the e-mail.
    I further suggest any e-mail with an expiry time should not be able to be captured by way of a screen shot.

  10. Option to send attachments unencrypted

    Ive found Gmail is rejecting encrypted attachments as a security risk.
    Does Automatic encryption have an opt-out.?

  11. Clear formatting function should switch to plain text without stripping line breaks

    The mail composition clear formatting function should switch existing text contents in the mail window simply to plain text WITHOUT stripping the carriage return / line breaks. Presently, Protonmail web mail defaults to HTML mode composition, but it would be useful to switch to plain text composition WITHOUT causing (especially) the quoted text from the e-mail that the user is replying to, to lose carriage returns / line breaks when switching to plain text mode.

  12. Improve Placement of Reply & Forward Functions; Differentiate Back Function

    The reply, forward, etc. functions are far to the right of the e-mail you are reading and not presented contextually (on a small windows 8 machine). Also, the arrow to move back to list view is nearly the same visually as the already-established-by-other-sites reply arrow. The two are confusing and I frequently think one is the function of the other.

  13. Donations

    Hello Protonmail team,
    Is there possible to implement another type of payment for donations?

    How about banking transfer?

    I do not have PayPal / Bitcoin accounts.

    Thanks

  14. keep it simple

    Do not over complicate the user interface with calendars and folders and avatars etc. On other sites this makes them look trashy and a pain to the eyes. So far you have it spot on. Looking forward to import of emails and sync with Thunderbird client.

  15. UTC instead of GMT

    I suggest using the acronym UTC instead of GMT. (The Wikipedia article on UTC says, "GMT is no longer precisely defined by the scientific community.")

  16. Reply to an email (cursor focus issue)

    Whenever I click on the "reply" button to reply to an email, I always have to "click" in the email text/body to begin typing. Why not simply default the mouse/cursor to be in the correct position so that I can immediately begin typing?

  18. Toolbar tooltips

    The toolbar on the top right of the page with icons which contains the three buttons for REPLY, FORWARD, etc should have tool tips appearing when mousing over them, just like the text formatting bar in the composition window.

  20. Better/Sharper website Background

    Hello,

    in my opinion it would be more beautiful/professionel if the background of your website look more sharper. I like it like it is but if it would be sharper it would look more modern and more professionel. :)
