    • Bitcoin Cash Payment Option!

      Bitcoin transactions fees are now too much, and it may take up to a few hours for a transaction to be confirmed. There's a payment system, which is nearly same of Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash. Its devs have a better vision "low fees, 1 block (10 minutes) transaction confirm time." If you haven't heard of it, here (https://bitcoin.stackexchange.com/a/58969/38618) you can see that many wallets support it.

      Kind regards.

      • SpamAssassin: set required level for each user separately

        It would be great if each user could modify the default level required in SpamAssassin (4) to another value (e.g. 5 if too many legitimate mails land in the spam folder).

        • Plus Account with EDU Email

          -> Free plus account for uni/post-secondary students

          - Can be featured in github's student pack (https://education.github.com/pack)
          - Account upgrade could simply expire at the end of educational term
          - Custom domain options allow students to use their EDU domain email with proton mail's superior service
          - Allows students to organize busy mail traffic without folder limitations
          - Increase storage capacity allows for multiple word documents and Comp. Sci projects

          • 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!

            • ZenCash Payment Acceptance

              ProtonMail badly needs an effective way to anonymously and securely purchase accounts and features. ZenCash is a growing crypto anonymity platform for currency, messages, and media. It is secured by a backbone of TLS secure nodes and employs zk-snarks transactions for TRULY untraceable transactions. Other "anonmyous" cryptos that don't us SNARKs technology fall short of being as private and secure as ZenCash is. It is a perfect fit. Thank You!

              • Integrate with pgp keystore for to addresses

                Allow us to provide public keys for our contacts, letting us encrypt emails to people without using protonmail "secure" email with password.

                Additionally offer search functionality for one of the well known keystores (MIT, etc) to find public keys for people you're sending emails to.

                • Implement DANE for added security and privacy

                  DANE (DNSSEC) would be hugely beneficial to the security and privacy of ProtonMail. DANE makes Man-in-the-Middle attacks practically impossible.

                  This is a necessary addition and should certainly be prioritized over-all, as it is at the core of what ProtonMail represents: privacy and security.

                  It's currently a feature available over at Tutanota (https://tutanota.com) and definitely sets it apart as an arguably more secure option, here's a great read on the topic: https://tutanota.com/blog/posts/dane-everywhere

                    • make protonmail faster

                      Search is slow
                      Deleting multiple (15+) emails is slow
                      Emptying the trash is slow

                      This service is so slow that I'd rather just let the NSA read my email

                        • Have multiple inboxes under one account.

                          As a protonmail+ user using a custom domain I shouldn't have to use a filter to have my custom domain emails show up in my main inbox. I would suggest having multiple inboxes under 1 account. What I mean is you sign in with your email and you have an inbox for name@protonmail.com, another mailbox for a@domain.tld, and another for b@domain.tld . Under each of these inboxes they can all have their own spam and archive folders and whatnot. This would be much nicer, but for some users as well who prefer a unified inbox protonmail could automatically…

                            • Ability to export emails

                              Have asked for this before and urgently need it if I am to stay using Protonmail. I need the ability to export emails off onto a local drive!!! Please hurry with this, I don't have time to manually export emails!

                              Only have a few KB left on my email account and I just do not have the time to pull off all the emails one by one!! This is just simply ridiculous and I am now looking at other systems that offer this essential feature.

                              • Pivx coin payment

                                PIVX ( Private Instant Verified Transaction ) is a cryptocurrency that prioritizes privacy and decentralized governance. As of 10/16/2017 they will have implemented the Zerocoin protocol to anonymize transactions. The mission ( and the color scheme of purple ) of Pivx and Protonmail align and I'd love to see Proton mail implement a PIVX payment option. For more information on Pivx, please visit pivx.org.

                                        • Desktop bridge for free users.

                                          I am so disappointed that the new 'Protonmail Bridge' is only for paid accounts. I love Protonmail for the fact that it is secure and free. If they continue to leave free users out of these great new features; I may not continue to use Protonmail!
