  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.

    • make a default domain shorter

      Make a regular domain shorter, for example: user@pm.com.
      user@protonmail.com is too long

      • ProtonMail Bridge for Linux

        I don't have a Windows or OSX machine, so ProtonMail Bridge doesn't appear to be an option for me. Is there any way Bridge for Linux could happen? The site says it's coming soon, but when is soon?

        • 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.

          • Multi-User support for PLUS subscription

            I have a PLUS subscription with a custom domain for my 5 family members. I would like them to gain access to their email separately, but from what I understand this requires a visionary subscription. I would like to have this feature included in the PLUS subscription for up to 5 users (same number of users as email addresses).

            • 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"?

                  • Contact Groups

                    We need to be able to group contacts, with the option to send mail to specific groups. The ability to add a group to the TO: field is a must as well, there is no way to add multiple contacts at the moment. This is a necessary feature that I have seen in every email service I have used.

                            You can utilize “+” to create variations to your existing ProtonMail address.

                            For example when signing up for a grocery store promotion you can do the following:

                            Original email address: test@protonmail.com
                            Grocery email address: test+grocerystorepromo@protonmail.com

                            In addition, 3.1 has brought the ability to add multiple email addresses to one account. You can learn more here: https://protonmail.com/blog/we-have-launched-support-for-custom-domains-and-paid-accounts/.

                          • Black font instead of grey.

                            By default, messages appear in a grey font (555555). Not enough contrasted to be comfortable to read. A possibility to choose default font color would be a good thing.

                            • Download all mail and attachments

                              The ability to download all mail and attachments associated with a PM account. This would be useful for keeping mail even after the 1 GB limit is reached -- it could be deleted from PM's servers after it is downloaded to a local disk. Once downloaded, security (encryption) would be the responsibility of the owner.
