  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,…

    • calendar integration

      I love protonmail as it is, to have an integrated calendar would be very handy. I would use it all the time then!!!

        • Encryption of all metadata

          If Protonmail is to be serious about privacy, I don't understand why all metadata isn't kept solely in encrypted form. I just signed up for Scryptmail and any data is kept in encrypted form, unreadable for any third party.

          I don't see why it would be necessary to keep for instance the senders or subject titles in encrypted form when Protonmail doesn't support POP3 or IMAP.

          The problem is that otherwise e-mail is inherently insecure, because if for instance a governmental entity wants to see your account, while they won't have access to the content of your e-mails, they can…

            We have given this quite a bit of thought, but at the present moment, it is not clear the advantages would outweigh the disadvantages.

            The biggest problem is search. Encrypting all metadata would break metadata search entirely on the web client as there is still no efficient way to handle search of encrypted data within a browser.

            Secondly, metadata encryption’s value from a privacy standpoint is also somewhat dubious. Because we ultimately must deliver the message to the recipient, we must know who the recipient is. At the current time, there still isn’t any proven and viable way to work around this.

            Metadata encryption is an area of continued research for us, and when the opportunity arises and the technology for doing this matures, we will definitely implement it in ProtonMail.

          • IMAP/SMTP + TLS support

            Multi support are needed for heavy mail client (Outlook/Thunderbird/Evolution etc...)

            Web access only is too limited

            • catch-all support for custom domains

              With the addition of custom domain support, I really would love the option to have a catch-all email address, as I've been using that feature a LOT on my current/previous hoster.

              I vastly prefer that over the account+alias@protonmail.com feature, as using that would require me to change all the places where I used all those other email addresses.

              • I would like to see cheaper premium plans for basic users

                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.

                • 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.

                  • multiple accounts for same, custom domain

                    The case is simple. I'd like my wife to have a separate account in the same, custom domain registered in protonmail. You can't have it in the current setup, as multiple addresses can be setup only for one account (so they are more like aliases). Multiple accounts could count towards one storage or account number limits.
                    Thanks.

                        • Desktop App

                          I know that Protonmail can't integrate with existing desktop mail apps, such as Apple Mail our Outlook, because of the extra passwords. However, I'm not a fan of having to access Protonmail through my browser. Is it possible to build a desktop app with similar functionality to Apple Mail our Outlook (minus the extras, such as calendar integration etc... although that would be nice too)? If you guys build an iphone app, for example, then I don't see it as a huge step to move on to a Mac OS app after that.

                              Please add in the contacts section a way to upload the public key of a non protonmail user. That way we would be capable to send and receive PGP (GnuPG) encyrpted mails from others.

                                  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…

                                      • Accept Monero payments for Protonmail Plus and Visionary upgrades

                                        Please accept Monero payments for Protonmail Plus and Visionary upgrades. Monero (XMR) is the most secure, private and untraceable currency available today. Many Monero users are longtime supporters of ProtonMail and would like payment privacy when upgrading their email account or making a donations.
