      • Data storage space

        People use Google drive, Dropbox or other cloud services to store their data. It would be great to have ProtonMail not only for mail but also for storing data safely in the cloud. I don't see the difference between regular files and emails so for me and lots of people/companies it would make sense to have both under the same umbrella

        • Sync Calendar

          The addition of an encrypted calendar that would sync across devices would be most welcome.

          • More actions to filters

            Hi.

            Actions like reject (return reject code to sender and don't save the message), delete (accept message, but don't save it), mark as spam and never mark as spam should be added to filter's options.

              Please (For God's sake) move the "ALL MAIL" folder far away from the TRASH folder! You have it directly underneath the Trash folder and I've accidentally emptied/deleted "all mail" twice now thinking I was emptying my Trash folder. So now I all my inbox mail is permanently gone.

              • Yubikey / FIDO U2F Support for Two Factor Authentication

                Although convenient, a cellular phone is not the most secure method of 2 Factor Authentication. Even more so, it is more likely to be stolen than a Physical 2 Factor device such as a Yubikey. I propose support for FIDO U2F which in turn would support physical 2 Factor devices that support this standard such as Yubikeys.

                Lastpass and Google both support these standards. If you truly want to become the encrypted version of Gmail as it has been said in the past, you need to be competitive with googles security standards.

                • Block External Read Receipts (gmail, etc)

                  It would be nice to have the ability to block any read receipts from external email providers.

                  • SMS for two factor authentication

                    I understand this wouldn't be the choice for the most privacy-seeking users, but when one doesn't own a smartphone, the good old code sent through SMS for 2FA would be a great feature!

                    Best regards,

                    • When sending/reading an email show if the email was sent/received securely

                      Gmail has this feature where we can see if it's secure or not.

                      • Stop using JAVascript for your new onion link. JavaScript undermines the anonymity of TOR

                        The name says it all really, stop using JavaScript for the onion site as it can completely undermine the security The Tor Project provides, I know for a fact there's a community that wouldn't use it due to that.

                        • Allow to use username other than an email address.

                          f.e.

                          email: support@protonmail.ch

                          username: somerandomname
                          password: somerandompass

                          So it will be impossibile to login with email address.

                            • ProtonMail registration has turned into privacy nightmare.

                              No disposable e-mails. No disposable phone numbers. Majority of free e-mail providers are blocked. "Phone number has been used already", "E-mail domain is blocked", captcha, captcha, captcha. What's next, ID verification and FBI log scandals? Fuck you, I was a big supporter, but I'll switch to other services.

                                • Do not auto delete expired message

                                  Currently the expired messages are also automatically deleted from user's 'sent' mailbox, which is not necessary and could stop a lot of customers consider using your services, such as medical industry, where history record is required by law to be kept for years.

                                  Most of the time, nobody wants to delete sent emails from their box. If anybody wants, he/she can always manually delete.

                                  Please don't auto delete expired message.

                                    Mastodon, a free, open-source federated social network, based on the GNUsocial spec.

                                    Mastodon's decentralized approach creates a social networking experience that pairs well with email, using the format `username@server.domain` for accounts.

                                    One of the primary concerns about adoption in Mastodon is that the operator of a server has access to user's private data; this seems like a good opportunity for Protonmail to extend the abilities provided under the blanket of customer trust already established, to create a *secure* endpoint for the social media network.

                                    Also, I'd like nothing better than for my Mastodon handle to be, simply, my…
