  1. Can we short the "protonmail" name?

    Just like when Google started with the Gmail service, back then it was @googlemail, which is not so good compared with the short @gmail name.
    What if ProtonMail stars something like "@pmail.com"?

    • Why do you attempt canvas fingerprinting?

      Hi, I accessed Protonmail via Tor Browser today, and during the account set up process, I clicked on "Learn More" before giving my phone number to verify. When the page loaded, Tor Browser warned me that you were attempting to access the HTML5 canvas image data, which could mean you were attempting to use canvas fingerprinting. Is that what the purpose was? Does that not go against your stated goals of protecting privacy? I am not judging one way or another, as I don't know why your website attempted to do that, but please do give answers.

      • spam

        It appears that SPAM works perfectly except when there is a filter applied. For example, a filter by recipient matches user2@example.com then move to folder user2. It would be nice to have the system SPAM process ahead of the filter process or even the option where the filter is applied before or after system SPAM process.

        • Encryption portal for recipients of Proton encrypted mail is needed to be considered business ready!

          Yes yes... Encryption portal for recipients of Proton encrypted mail
          A portal for none ProtonMail customers IS Essential:
          - with a portal a recipient is able to create their own account to view encrypted emails from a ProtonMail sender.
          - a ProtonMail mail sender does not have to regenerated new keys.
          - plus the recipient doesn't have to administered the passwords.
          - no need to manually administered keys or passwords for none ProtonMail recipient's
          - future proof ProtonMail, none customers are able to administered all ProtonMail senders within one portal, i.e I have to other business ProtonMail plus users, and…

          • i think Protonmail should buy the rights to promail.com so we could have a cooler looking and shorter end name.

            buy the promail.com rights and allow us to have the option to have an email that ends in promail.com short for protonmail it looks 10 times cooler and its shorter!..
            i would actually buy a paid subscription for a promail.com email

              • Pro version should have 5 emails + 5 users

                I have been a protonmail for less than a week and I love it! So much so that I upgraded to pro so that I can give my wife an email account where we can communicate and share private info.

                To my surprise, the 5 emails in pro are only that, 5 emails. I cannot manage or assign additional users the emails that I have created.

                This was very frustrating to me because if I want to create users I have to upgrade to visionary, which I will not do for a family of 2.

                I would like to request…

                • I would like to see cheaper premium plans for basic users

                  I would like to support Protonmail development with premium subscription. Current plans are however too expensive for basic users.
                  I would only need basic functionality, with possibility to create email aliases.

                  Or the other way around, give users possibility to opt out some current features from premium subscription with lesser money.

                  • Add option to send a Delivery failed email

                    Add option to possibly send a delivery failed email to received emails. This would be really a great option for us to get rid of some senders.

                      • Dark Mail Alliance Collaboration

                        PGP (which I refer to as Email 2.0), is great for sending encrypted messages. One of the popular requests here on Uservoice is for metadata to be encrypted in transit as well. The problem with the PGP protocol though, is that it can't encrypt the subject header, to/from/cc/bcc fields, or other metadata. PGP also can't do forward-secrecy, and if the one of the users private key is compromised, an eavesdropper can read all previous and future correspondence, instead of just future correspondence.

                        Enter the Dark Mail Alliance, a group of representatives from email & privacy companies working on creating new,…

                        • 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.

                            • 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…

                              • Allow the option to delete emails from all manually blacklisted senders instead of putting them in the spam directory

                                Currently my spam directory is filling up super quickly.
                                I would like my manually blacklisted senders to be actually blocked - have their incoming messages deleted completely and not transferred to my spam directory.
                                Currently you spam filtering is not so good, as you obviously know. Sometimes you put valid stuff in my spam directory, but since there is so much stuff getting in there, I find it incredibly difficult to find the valid emails in there and many times take my chances and delete all contents of the spam directory.

                                  • Authentification through passphrases rather than passwords

                                    Passphrases differ from passwords in the sense that they can contain binary characters. They can be recorded in files containing many more characters than the few human beings are able to memorize, and key in. This option would prevent any type of attack against the protonmail mail service as it is impossible to guess 50, 100 or even more binary octets.

                                      Protonmail should be federated.

                                      Why has it never been discussed? It seems silly that Protonmail only works with Protonmail, there should be a open federated standard all encrypted email providers can use together.

                                      In a perfect world, you could use easy automated encryption between providers like Protonmail, Tutanota and Mailpile. You would even be able to easily host your own email server that adheres to this standard.

                                      Please make it happen.

                                      • Automatic bundling of emails for arguments (trips, purchase...)

                                        As in "Inbox by gmail", this helps a lot in having a clean and effective inbox. One example for all, bundling automatically all the emails received for a specific trip is really really effective and time saving.
                                        This feature is the only one that I currently miss from "Inbox by Gmail".

                                        Have a nice day,
                                        Francesco

                                          Please add an option to optionally display and save the user agent used to access protonmail on the logs history
