How can we improve ProtonMail?

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"?

        Simon, thanks.... will take a little getting use to (.me), but what better way to become that much better, than to be an innovator.

        youremail@pm.me

        As I'm putting in my email to post I'm already thankful.... now all I need in Proton is to be able to open in tabs and I'll be fine.

        pmail is too hilarious to take seriously. I would never send something from that domain.

        They acquired a two letter extension and tweeted about that recently? Didn't disclose the actual name.

        the "mail" part is kind of redundant in a way. everyone and their grandmother would recognise name@site as email because of the @ symbol, so something like @proton.com would be alright

        but if the .mail domain was available then "@proton.mail" would only be one character longer than .com so that wouldnt be too bad in that case

        i dont find "protonmail.ch" to be much of a problem tbh... chrome can autofill it when you are putting it into some text boxes. if not then just use something like autohotkey to make a hotstring that will type it when you type "pmail"
        most keyboards on mobile should be able to autofill the address for you as well

        promail.com would sound better

      • TerrawinTerrawin commented  · 

        @promail.com would be nice.

      • AnonymousAnonymous commented  · 

        Great Idea, the term @pmail.com would be much easyer and sounds great

      • IgorIgor commented  · 

        What about @proton.mail? It's going to be released soon.

      • AnonymousAnonymous commented  · 

        The name Proton Mail obviously caught your attention & you are using the service. Proton Mail is a strong, interesting name....sounds like a keeper to me.

        Are you going to do this or not?

        Am sick of this long drawn out name, need something very short to be able to dive in quickly, this is just not a professional name.

      • GG commented  · 

        I second the motion for proton,com....fitting I think. Otherwise protonmail.com is very good too

      • sergisergi commented  · 

        @proton.com would be the best solution

      • AnonymousAnonymous commented  · 

        I believe pmail.com would be a very bad idea. Just think when you give out your mailadress verbally, and the person perceives pmail.com as being gmail.com. Other suggestions like proton.com and promail.com might work better.

        I hope this won't be implemented as I love the current name as it is

      • VannTileVannTile commented  · 

        Just say 'pmail' out loud and you get why this is a bad idea

      • KjKj commented  · 

        Yes please! I love Proton Mail but writing it down for others is annoying.

        They will need pro Tons of money to buy the domain name xD
        Otherwise they can use pmail.ch (y) (y) LOL which is also an email service xD
