  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.

  2. make a default domain shorter

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

  3. 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?

  4. 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.

  5. 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).

  6. 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"?

  7. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. Removing accounts after some time of inactivity and Recycling usernames are bad ideas.

    Email is not only a communication tool, but probably more importantly an internet identity. People use their email to open accounts on websites. If an email address is deleted and reused by another user, then all personal data bonded with that email address is lost and at risk.
    As I know gmail doesn't recycle email addresses. That's a considerate idea.

  13. View Message Source

    View Message Source is an invaluable tool to help prevent inadvertently exposing ourselves to a well-crafted spoofed email designed to steal information. PLEASE add this functionality soon.

  15. 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.

  16. User Controlled Email Filtering

    I would like to be able to set up email filters such as those available on GMail and other mail services. I receive many spam emails that are not marked as spam and my inbox is constantly filled with junk mail from a few senders. It would be useful to be able to send emails to trash based on sender or specific keywords.

  17. Possibility to download all attachments at once and compressed

    Dear ProtonMail team and dear all,
    As a Thunderbird and Apple Mail user, I find very practical the possibility to save all the attachments at once (most often as a *.zip file). Do you think compressing multiple attachments is doable on your servers? Or would it be possible to have a function to download all the files at once (for people who forget to zip/compress it first when they send them)?
    Thanks a lot for your hard work and incredible service so far!

    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/.
