    • 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.

      • Grouping email addresses

        I need a way to group email addresses so I do not have to remember them individually. It would be great to have this feature. Thanks!

        • 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!

          • 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

            • 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.

              • Button to record audio message (recording vocal audio like in instant chat apps)

                It could be faster then using a program on your local desktop to record your voice vocal audio an then attaching it to the mail (as a normal attachment).

                • 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.

                    • 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…

                      • 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?

                        • automatic VPN kill switch to interupt up/download when VPN is disconnected.

                          When your VPN disconnects, it should also interupt the Internet connection so that active downloads or uploads are interrupted. Currently when the VPN is disrupted... my computer continues run with my information in the open without encryption. This is a serious breach of security.

                          • ProtonMail App for MacOS

                            For MacOS, for more protection, we should get a new MacOS app for ProtonMail. This is a more simple way of using ProtonMail instead of visiting the website or creating new encryption methods for existing mail apps (such as apple mail).

                              If I have 20 emails to read, I want to just kick 1 button to read the next email. Instead of clicking back to the main page, then going back the 2nd email, and on and on. Gmail has this.

                              • Only allow login with the username/main address, not with every address.

                                Do not allow that you can log into the account with every address.

                                If my account name is john.smith then only allow login with john.smith or john.smith@protonmail.com. Not with finance.john.smith@protonmail.com or any other address.

                                Perfect would be if you would have the choice what address can be used in order to log into your account.

                                With the current way you have to give away your login username in order to send emails. Hiding the username from the public would be an advantage, since they would have to guess your username and the password. Not only one of them.

                                • 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!
