  1. 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.

    • Spoofed messages rules

      Hi.

      There should be added option to set action of spoofed messages (failed spf, dkim or dmarc). There should be options: use domain's action, only mark (that red bar on top), mark and move to spam and reject.

      • Integration with Apple Mail on desktop and mobile

        I love the idea of ProtonMail, and with the bridge, it works pretty well (albeit somewhat awkwardly) on desktop. On mobile the separate app works well. However this after-the-fact integration effort falls down when it comes to the sharing built into various apps. I can no longer easily email anything from another app on mobile, and have to find less convenient ways to share. I would love for you to partner with Apple to make this a truly seamless integration. Otherwise, I fear I'm headed back to Apple Mail soon.. thanks.

          • Add button beside email addresses to add them to Contacts

            Please add an "Add to Contacts" button beside email addresses (next to the "Compose to" button) that allows users to seamlessly add the sender/recipient's name and email address to their Contacts.

            Currently, unless we allow ProtonMail to automatically add every email address we interact with to our Contacts (which for me gets out of hand), we have to manually copy each sender/recipient's name, leave our inbox and navigate to our contacts, create a new contact, paste the name, then go back to the inbox and repeat the process to copy and paste the email address. A prohibitive amount of steps…

                • The Android Protonmail App

                  On July 1st I downloaded the ProtonMail Android app and let it run on my phone for 1 month without setting any account details while I monitored its behaviour. The app made a constant connection to protonmail.ch as I expected. But periodically, it made a second short lived connection to an amazon cloud computing server in the United States.
                  After the month was up (yesterday) I entered my username and password for the first time and logged into my Protonmail account, doing so practically lit up my connection monitoring software as the Protonmail app opened 17 connections, yes, seventeen connections…

                  • Show last login IP & timestamp after logging in (similar to Linux terminal)

                    I would like for there to be an option to display the last login IP address & timestamp after logging in as a banner above the inbox such that it doesn't require me to go all the way to "Settings" -> "Authentication Logs" whenever I need to verify that my account hasn't been logged into by an unauthorised party.

                    This banner should also display the total number of failed logins since the last successful login (again, similar to Linux terminal). See:

                    Last failed login: Mon Jul 31 13:47:21 UTC 2017
                    There were 2 failed login attempts since the last successful…

                    • Could you have ProtonMail auto-logout when inactive for (x) minutes?

                      I have (on more than one occasion) left my email up and walked away from my computer only to come back hours later to see that my email is still open. Is there a way to auto-logout via a configurable set of minutes?

                      • 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.

                        • Assign custom domain to existing account

                          E.g. I have domain somedomain.com added to my protonmail. I want to give friend@somedomain.com to my friend's account.

                          Currently sub-users are avaibale only in visionary plan, but I need only to "forward" messages from friend@somedomain.com to EXISTING protonmail account (and allow sending him messages from that address).

                          Would be nice to see that feature and e.g. plus account can assing up to 10-20 aliases (will be sufficient) and free account should be able to have several aliases from custom domains (or even unlimited).

                            • No Data Retention, no logs, and more transparency.

                              Things that should have been here.

                              Protonmail needs to be more transparent in the same way as it is expressively transparent, when it says that its service is hosted in Switzerland.

                              Why?

                              There are things we should not ask to do as we do here on this list, ask for encrypted data where it should already have, major keys etc.

                              These things should already be in place and not be something on demand.

                              Protonmail has an easier to use interface, but that does not mean it's not as accurate in privacy as it should be.

                                • Option to permanently delete (unlink) aliases from ProtonMail account.

                                  To protect ProtonMail user privacy and anonymity, we need an option to permanently unlink (delete) aliases from ProtonMail accounts.

                                  Address counter can stay incremented, but the deleted identity (alias) should not be linked to the main account any more. Unlinked e-mail address should stay permanently disabled to prevent address recycling.

                                  A 7, 14 or 30 day deletion waiting time can be implemented to prevent spammers from abusing ProtonMail aliases.

                                    Provide an option to permanently remove/delete inactive (therefore actually unusable, in case of forgotten password) private keys from the list in the account settings to avoid cluttering.

                                    • Ability to Paste images into messages

                                      Pasting images into emails, rather than having to attach them as file, would be make your service much more usable. I'm a software developer and have to exchange screenshots continuously, and having to save them and attach them makes using ProtonMail very slow.

                                      If you made this part of the paid service I'm sure you'd convert a lot of the free account holders.

                                        Please refer to both Digical, who has vibrant easy to read Calendar Screens with many color options, nice Events Options, and widgets AND SolCal who has EXCELLENT To Do Lists and Events as well. Sol Call is actually my favorite featurewise with the ability to add BOTH events and to do with reminders that stay put until complete/checked off...Both products have nice, customizable widgets with Transparency Option which works great on Android screens. I love both of these but want an all in one to track Email, Calendar, Events, To Dos in an encrypted and effective way with a nice…

                                          Hi. I created a folder "Logs" which should be receiving all e-mails sent from an application on our server. These are constant e-mails sent periodicaly from the app and I don't want the main inbox to be spammed with it, nor bother myself with constant moving them to "Logs" folder. I want them to be automaticaly (always) redirected to that folder.
                                          Second use case is that there is forwarding set up on other support@our-server.com address to my protonmail address and there are quite many of these e-mails - again I want to create a folder for this, I don't want…
