  1. Dedicated gmail Import Tool / Feature (Without Using The Bridge)

    Please provide a stand alone method to import all gmail message history, without the use of a bridge. So many of us would like to completely leave gmail behind, but cannot because we still rely on the message history in old gmail accounts.

    I don't want to download the message history to a computer. I want to transfer all messages directly to folders in my active PM accounts, where I can access them at any time within my PM accounts. Thanks.

    • XRB Raiblocks/Nano payment option!

      Add Rai (soon Nano) as a payment option. Bitcoin transactions fees are now too much, and it may take up to a few hours for a transaction to be confirmed. Unlike BTC there are NO fees for Rai, and transactions are nearly instant!

        • Proton Browser

          Proton Browser

          I would Like to see a Browser like chrome, firefox, or Brave. But without the tracking and also it being based in the same location as protonmail would mean its secure and safe to use.

          With companys like google buying up all the alternative browsers I think this a needed program/app. What good is the secure email when Chrome is snap shoting and keylogging your protonmail logins.

              • Browser Quick Login with PIN

                I would like a similar experience in the browser that we have with the mobile app. Set an expiration where the user can still unlock quickly with PIN.

                A trusted computer browser stores the main logon cookie with no expiration. But this cookie only has an encrypted blob that cannot access the mailbox alone. The 2nd cookie set to expire in X minutes/hours must be combined with a user supplied PIN, and that will decrypt the non-expiring main cookie blob, which logs the user back into the mailbox.

                • ProtonVault

                  How about a service like LastPass or 1Password to make it easy to store all passwords and secure notes either online and synced with other computers and devices, or locally on one device. A secure password manager using the best of ProtonMail/ProtonVPN services

                    • Too have an option to block email addresses from being able to send you mail

                      It would be great to be able to block certain email addresses from being able to send you emails. Not just a filter to go to “spam” but being able to actually block the sender totally

                      • ProtonVPN - Plus Country config

                        Country config only give access to the basic servers even for Plus subscribers. This limits the number of IPs which are randomly cycled through by a Plus user and takes away a lot of incentive to upgrade.
                        It would be useful to have Plus specific country config files.

                        • Implement DANE for added security and privacy

                          DANE (DNSSEC) would be hugely beneficial to the security and privacy of ProtonMail. DANE makes Man-in-the-Middle attacks practically impossible.

                          This is a necessary addition and should certainly be prioritized over-all, as it is at the core of what ProtonMail represents: privacy and security.

                          It's currently a feature available over at Tutanota (https://tutanota.com) and definitely sets it apart as an arguably more secure option, here's a great read on the topic: https://tutanota.com/blog/posts/dane-everywhere

                          • Protonmail App for Android is Very Slow

                            Hello Protons,

                            I use Proton mail as my central and master repository for all email correspondence (paid-up). However I'm finding its slow performance in android is really killing my productivity and my frustration is at breaking point; now looking to find alternatives.

                            I understand that a full encrypted service such as protonmail may never achieve the same level of responsiveness as other apps like Gmail, however there is a limit at which no longer becomes usable.

                            I find the app to be excessively laggy, I wait for actions to respond, by which time I've moved on elsewhere in the app…

                            • *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,…

                                • Improve addressing with extension character; allow hyphen (-); use correct sender address.

                                  1. Add the use of a hyphen (-) as the extension character, in addition to plus (+). Reasoning is below.

                                  2. When a message arrives for example-bob@protonmail.com, replies sent by the recipient should automatically show example-bob@protonmail.com as both the header sender and the envelope sender. The reason should be obvious.

                                  Why hyphen (-) in addition to plus (+). The use of plus (+) tells people that you are using an extension, while the use of hyphen (-) makes the address look like an ordinary address.

                                  Many buggy websites reject email addresses that contain a plus.

                                  For additional reasoning see…

                                      • Only allow login with the username/main address, not with every address.

                                        Do not allow that you can log into the account with every address.

                                        If my account name is john.smith then only allow login with john.smith or john.smith@protonmail.com. Not with finance.john.smith@protonmail.com or any other address.

                                        Perfect would be if you would have the choice what address can be used in order to log into your account.

                                        With the current way you have to give away your login username in order to send emails. Hiding the username from the public would be an advantage, since they would have to guess your username and the password. Not only one of them.
