  4. Enhanced Folder Functionality

    Every other major (and many minor) email clients have hierarchical folders - organizing emails is not a discretionary function. Proton Mail should have:

    1. Nested folders (critical)

    2. Unlimited nesting (important) - a reasonable compromise would be 2 or 3 levels of nesting.

    3. Drag n Drop sorting (critical)

    4. Search options that reflect hierarchies (all folders / sub folders / this folder) (important)

    5. Color inheritance (from the top-most folder in a group (not important)

    I can't fully migrate off my other emails until this basic functionality is supported.

  5. Temporary new accounts without SMS verification

    Thank you for an very important product!

    There are, however, people who do not trust the reason for SMS verification to be spam reason only. You could have a day or two for when new accounts can be registered without SMS verification. And of course, pre-announced to your current members a month ahead.

    Thank you for a great product!

  6. 1 TB or more cloud storage like other competitors

    That would be great if protonmail provides a large amount of cloud storage (1TB or more) like google drive or one drive for emails and file sharing with reasonable price.

  9. Add a new and alternative to Protonmail.com/.ch and PM.ME extensions

    I suggest to create a new and alternative extension different to @Protonmail.com/.ch and to @PM.ME and that is totally new to register.

    For example, actually if a user register name.surname@protonmail.com automatically is registered to @pm.me

    I suggest to create a new:

    - protonmail.net

    That is not linked to existing users.

    This will allow more user to obtain beautiful username.

    Please support my idea and sorry for my bad english.

  10. One Off Purchase. 100 Euro for Plus, 200 Euro for Pro. Lifetime Subscription?

    I'm sure I'm not alone when I say that I like to keep my number of subscriptions minimal. It's just healthy. Basically. I would pay a good amount to get a lifetime subscription on plus / pro. Thoughts?

  11. Privacy Phone Cases

    Proton stands for privacy. Why not a phone case with a camera coverslider on the back? So you slide the cover from the camera to take a picture, but you cover your camrea when you are not using it. So no one is wathcing you from your own camera.

  12. Auto-Archive Email

    Outlook provides the ability to set rules for automatically archiving email based on age and folder/label. Rules like this allow a user to keep their mailbox clean and reduce storage utilization.

    It would be fantastic if we could set the following:

    1. A default auto-archive age for all mail.
    2. Set custom auto-archive ages for a certain folder or label that overrides the default.

    Even if the default is set to "Off" for everyone, I'd love this ability.

  13. Remove automatic signature

    Forcing to have the automatic signature is just annoying and will not convince me to upgrade to a paid subscription given that i can simply erase it everytime.

  14. I have donated some $50 when it say "Prove you are human" But I have gotten no upgrade. I used a credit card and paid $5 ten times at least.

    I have already donated over $50 when it says "Prove you are human"..I use my credit card. I have never gotten an upgrade.

  15. Attachment downloads

    I would like the ability to preview an attachment paper or image before downloading it to my PC. It be possible for the email to act as the download space prior to moving it to a PC. This way, we can see what people are sending us before we actually download it.

  17. I have an iphone and would like to integrate proton mail with IMAP so that I don't have to have proton mail as a stand alone app.

    I have an iphone with an Outlook account and would like to integrate proton mail with IMAP so that I don't have to have proton mail as a stand alone app. This would also allow me to select a sound when I receive an email instead of defaulting to iphone's one and only notification sound iphone uses for all of its apps.

  18. Choose wether or not to sign external messages before sending them

    In ProtonMail v3.15.27, we can choose wether or not to sign external messages in Settings > Security > External PGP Settings (optional).

    Each time I have to send a message to a recipient that does not support emails with unauthorized attachments, I have to change this setting.

    It would be great if we could configure this before sending a message.

    There is a similar feature for encrypting emails, which is accessible through the lock icon at the bottom of the message editor.

    Thanks.

  19. Divide Contacts

    It would be nice to have an option to put your phone contacts into groups and then export only that ones, instead of individually picking each one or exporting all.

  20. Paying and "de-Googling,"

    When it comes to paying for ProtonMail goods and services, where does the money go? IF I had a say in it, I want the money to go making this email and it's related services even better for it's customers, not just for making Andy Yen, Jason Stockman, and Wei Sun money, frankly.There has to be a way to get them profit consistently, and keep our security and privacy consistently over years. So long as you abide by Swiss laws and standards, and can be held accountable higher up consistently, ok. You're based in Switzerland and do the above, that's…
