    If they add this setting, any chance they could also add a settings to disable this feature from being used on you?

    I see negative comments. My purpose is to ensure the staff I am e mailing are opening and reading the e mails sent in a timely manner. Proton mail if for me because it is HIPAA compliant.

    I vote for this. Any mail client can do that why protonmail can't? It's always the responsibility of the sender to accept the acknowledgement. And if he doesn't want, fair enough, at least you should be able to know that your message has reached its destination. There's nothing against privacy in this, you already know you have sent an email to the recipient !

    The day that happens is the day I quit using Proton for good. What a lousy idea! I started to use Proton to avoid creepy intrusions like this.

    That does seem stupid tbh... That is like why ppl use proton, to have privacy. And that option would not be much privacy, now would it?

    Proton is the wrong place for you! Privacy for you but not for the recipients of your mails? A queer wish!

    Pleas stop giwe those kind of options: Why you need to know as you mail been readet or noth, If persone dont want contact with you , then he/she should have that option. I like privacy . I dont want that mother of law, or gov knows how many time per day i logged in or did i logged in mailbox and so on .....Stop sneaking afther oder persons life, and live you own one, thanks

    I have been using Free HubSpot for quite long time and now thanks to PM Bridge I can trace it through Outlook

    I used to have bigstring and it was a super innovator it allowed you to view how many times a person viewed a mail and gave you a time option. I could send a final with a few seconds to self-distruct option without a trace. I can't tell you enough how this is important in my line of communication. You can determine honesty in this manner. I need people who know what's right from what's wrong without any vacilation. I have dealt with time critical matters that not only cost people money but in some cases in war torn places their very lives.

    I would rather prefer to have this option developed by PM team than allow 3rd party to scan my emails, and most of them are on US soil anyway
