  1. folder notifications

    On both web and android app: An option to receive notification from new emails that are auto-filtered to folders.

    Otherwise my workaround is to have them arrive at inbox for the notification, then manually move them into the assigned folder.

          • This program can't prevent harassment based on illegal surveillience so if you want me back, do it.

              • Feature Request: iOS app swipe left-to-right to mark messages as read.

                There are a few options available in settings for the swipe left-to-right action. "Mark Message As Unread" is one of them. Can we get an option added to "Mark Message As Read" please?

                Seems to be a popular suggestion: https://www.reddit.com/r/ProtonMail/comments/aqbnob/feature_request_ios_app_swipe_lefttoright_to_mark/

                • There should be a backup feature provided for paying customers.

                  There should be a backup feature provided for paying customers. We need the ability to backup all email and folders to a local drive. The recent VFMail disaster demonstrates how vulnerable some email providers can be. I encourage you to provide this support as soon as possible. Consider this suggestion as an additional enhancement to your current email software.

                  • Import-Export tool: Set master or default folder

                    Problem: I'm trying to migrate all my Yahoo emails to ProtonMail using the Import-Export tool.

                    I have resorted to migrating in batches, because I have over 30 different folders in Yahoo, many of which contain several thousands of emails. When my Yahoo account is loaded in Import-Export, it lists all the Yahoo folders (From) and target folders (To).

                    Basically, it tries to default to the same named folder in ProtonMail or "Archive" folder. However, since I'm doing the migration one folder at a time, I have to manually select "Do not import" to over 30 folders for each import which…

                    • Filters for email notification on security logs

                      Similarly to how we can add automated filters for incoming email, it would be nice to be able to filter security events to notify us with an email if a certain filter is tripped.

                      For example, I mostly log in with one of two ip addresses. If I could set up an alarm to trip whenever my account is accessed from another ip address, I would like to be notified of it with an email.

                          • in the notification email can you put some designator as to which account the message is in?

                            I have multiple Proton mail account all sending message notification emails to a single email. I don't know which account the email is in? SO could you put something in the notification email that would help?

                            • "Archive all read" button

                              There's a philosophy called "Inbox Zero" based around archiving all unneeded emails to get a better sense of what still needs attention. Google Inbox supported this philosophy by having a "Sweep" feature, which archived all unpinned emails.

                              Right now, it's a bit strenuous to apply this philosophy in Protonmail. I have to go to More > Show read > Select all > Archive .

                              It'd be really useful to have an "Archive all read" button that would archive all of my read messages.

                                • Multi-factor authentication - That is only needed once in regular computers

                                  It would be great to have multi-factor authentication for all new machines, but that you could click save (like amazon, gmail, etc...) so you don't have to reput authentication each time you go into Proton Mail.

                                  I really like MFA, but i don't feel the need to put it each time i need to log into my email. But anything that is new (broswer, computer, device), it should ask for the code. But if its in your usual pc, its should not necessarily be needed.

                                  • hide ALL MAIL folder

                                    It happend two times that I wanted to click on the Trash folder (to delete old messages there) but hit "All Mail".
                                    What happened as I marked all items and clicked on delete button: every email was deleted, from inbox, form send items, from archive and so on.
                                    I do not need the "All Mail" folder, it is confusing for my workflow. It would be great to have a checkbox in the settings which will hide this folder.
                                    Best regards,

                                    • hide ALL MAIL folder

                                      It happend two times that I wanted to click on the Trash folder (to delete old messages there) but hit "All Mail".
                                      What happened as I marked all items and clicked on delete button: every email was deleted, from inbox, form send items, from archive and so on.
                                      I do not need the "All Mail" folder, it is confusing for my workflow. It would be great to have a checkbox in the settings which will hide this folder.
                                      Best regards,

                                      • Secure p2p copy service for (large) file transfers

                                        This might be something that could attract more users with minimal effort for development and maintenance. All the service would have to do is facilitate a direct p2p connection via some web interface. There are a few services out there already (e.g. justbeamit.com, file.pizza,...). As there is always an element of trust involved, it would help to have a reputable and well known company offering it as well. Should be easy on ProtonMail's resources too, as none of the actual traffic would have to go through any of their servers.
                                        It certainly would be one solution to https://xkcd.com/949/ .

                                          I want to use Proton Bridge but I can't because I am not a paid subscriber.
                                          I want to pay but you make it very difficult to find where to sign up and begin paying.
                                          I've searched high and low but cannot find it.
                                          Make it easy to find.....
