  1. Keyboard security

    Keyboard entries don't seem to be secure on Android devices. Why don't you introduce an inkognito keyboard like Signal has it for some time already?

  2. delete spam emails

    I like to have a button on my spam folder to empty it, like I have on my yahoo account.
    Right now I have to delete each and every spam mail TWICE, because it first goes into the trash folder. WHY?

  3. inbound distribution list

    Please create the option to have an inbound email distribution list, e.g. family@domain.com forwards email to multiple inboxes. Basically what gmail is doing with groups.

    family@domain.com -> father@domain.com, mother@domain.com, kid@domain.com.

    Thank you

  5. 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.

  6. Pruning

    The option to prune messages matching certain conditions (folder, tag, filter) after a set time.

    Use cases for this would include package dispatch notifications, which are generally not needed once a delivery has been received.

  7. SpamAssassin: default required value for all users

    As long as my other idea (https://protonmail.uservoice.com/forums/284483-feedback/suggestions/34132327-spamassassin-set-required-level-for-each-user-sep) is not yet implemented:
    Set required level in SpamAssassin more conservatively as suggested by SpamAssassin:
    https://spamassassin.apache.org/full/3.1.x/doc/Mail_SpamAssassin_Conf.html#user_preferences
    Default (for single-user setup) is 5 - for ISPs they suggest that "you should probably set the default to be more conservative, like 8.0 or 10.0". ProtonMail sets the value to 4 for all users! That is too low!

  8. Family Account

    Please change the billing to allow an additional user for "plus" accounts with a maximum of 2 users as to not steal business from the "Pro" sales.

    Cost breakdown:

    1 user 2 users +$1.75/month
    5 gb shared data saves $3.75/month
    5 addresses shared addresses saves $0.75/month
    1 domain shared domain saves $1.50/month

  9. Allow search by both (label AND folder), (label AND label AND label)

    Expand search on filters

    - allow to search a label and a folder
    - allow to search a label and/or a label and/or a label
    - allow to search (a label and/or a label) and a folder

    Then I can look for different aspects of the same directory.

    First of all add a feature to verify my email with documents.

  13. Privacy with google???

    Add alternative downloads, we need to check app details for security , impossible only one store ! google have to much malware apps and they never keep privacy, because they selling everything. Minimum is 2 ways(downloads) and details(date, filesize, MD5, ....) on your website.
    Google is the last in the row....i never get some money, for spying, from them!!!!

  15. Passphrase file to decrypt an external email

    Hello,

    I'd like to suggest a passphrase file to encrypt and read emails to non-ProtonMail recipients, in a similar fashion to OpenBSD's bioctl (-p option, see https://man.openbsd.org/bioctl and https://www.openbsd.org/faq/faq14.html#softraidCrypto for their high-level implementation).

    This means that instead of giving a random password to your recipients (which, to my experience, may be tedious and plainly awkward), a ProtonMail user could simply give a passphrase file with a USB drive.

    In my humble opinion, this could significantly improve ProtonMail's "Encrypt Messages for Non-ProtonMail Recipients" feature.

  18. Selective notifications by address

    I don't like getting notifications for every single email I get, I've used other less secure email addresses to receive routine emails that I don't want notifications for, but of course with the ever growing problem of hacking, I realize that I'm leaving information vulnerable as an attack vector. It would be nice to have notifications for certain ProtonMail addresses, while others are received quietly, yet all available under the same login.

  20. merge email accounts

    I am not sure if this has been mentioned or not?
    Do we have the ability to start moving over our other email accounts to protonmail such as hotmail, google, yahoo, microsoft exchange emails, etc? Be nice to respond to all the emails under one roof without having to either log into them separatley or having to move them all to google?
