How can we improve ProtonMail?

Option to permanently delete (unlink) aliases from ProtonMail account.

To protect ProtonMail user privacy and anonymity, we need an option to permanently unlink (delete) aliases from ProtonMail accounts.

Address counter can stay incremented, but the deleted identity (alias) should not be linked to the main account any more. Unlinked e-mail address should stay permanently disabled to prevent address recycling.

A 7, 14 or 30 day deletion waiting time can be implemented to prevent spammers from abusing ProtonMail aliases.

        My recovery email is wrong and I deleted my proton acct but it's still rejecting my outlook mail. I need to know why it's still linked I can't get any of my emails, I have had to create a whole new email just for a response here .

        Yes, please!
        Also in favor of the deletion waiting time if that helps to prevent any issues of abuse.

        I agree, too. When I tried to set up an alias, I mistyped. Now I've wasted an alias and I don't know what to do.

        I now use my own domain and aliases with it as they let you delete those ones. It's unfortunate I'm stuck with aliases with a ProtonMail domain.
