  1. 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?

    • make a default domain shorter

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

        • 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).

          • 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.

            • 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.

                  • 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.

                    • 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.

                      • Folders, please?

                        Just to reiterate what has been requested by others, folders would be amazing and will allow me to use my proton mail as my primary email set up.

                        Eventually, yes, I would like to see a desktop app for both Mac and Windows, however for the time being folders will suffice. Thank you.

                          • Inbox folders, custom sorting rules (somewhat like GMail's inbox tabs)

                            GMail offers a very useful tool for sorting emails, through the inbox folders (Primary, Social, Promotions, Updates, Forums, etc)

                            It would be awesome to have a similar, perhaps more customizable feature in ProtonMail! Perhaps the ability to create and name custom folders and set rules to direct emails containing <x> string in the subject, body, and sender address to a designated folder. Perhaps this could even be done through tags, by implementing an auto-tagging feature, or both the former and latter.

                            • Block remote images from loading in apps

                              Currently, the mobile apps automatically load remote images in emails. This is a privacy risk because it reveals to the sender that the recipient's address is active, that the email was opened, from which IP address, at what time, etc. This gives websites/advertisers/spammers a ton of data about users.

                              There needs to be an option in the apps to block remote images by default, and only load them on a per-message basis when the user chooses to do so, just like the feature in the webmail version of ProtonMail.

                              • Support TouchID on iOS or Fingerprint+Secure Element to log into the app

                                To simplify access to the mobile app and mantain a certain level of security, it would be interesting to add as an option to use the secure element for all phones that support it to store the key and allow an easier and quicker login.

                                    • aliases

                                      To top off the security of Proton Mail it great to be able to generate email aliases.

                                      This would allow Proton Mail users to log in to each website/service online with a different email address.

                                      This would increase online anonymity and reduce the chance of a Proton Mail user getting hacked.

                                      Detailed Description:

                                      When a user wants a new alias they click 'new alias' and a new email is generated that always forwards to the user's main email.

                                      e.x. 1b1f6253-a280-43e2-95e2-043e82dae3e7@protonmail.com

                                      Then a user can label that email so they can keep track of what it is used for.

                                      ex. Facebook

                                        Introduce a family paid plan, I think it would be very handy for many people

                                        • Remove/Update misleading and false claims in paid plans - Custom domain - Users

                                          I am requesting that the seemingly deliberately, misleading claims of Protonmail Plus and Protonmail Visionary be updated to reflect clearly that the "5 ADDRESSES" and Custom Domain Support does not actually work as most people will interpret it.
                                          I have been inspired to ask having read https://protonmail.uservoice.com/forums/284483-feedback/suggestions/12484953-multiple-accounts-for-same-custom-domain

                                          It seems that the 5 addresses are not in fact 5 user accounts that can be used with a custom domain but in fact 5 alias type addresses that can only be used by one person. It also seems that only one person can use the custom domain address.
