  1. Option to empty entire inbox just like the empty trash button

    I keep getting the notification that i'm running out of space, but I'm only able to delete 50 messages at a time from my inbox. I would rather not spend a good 10-20 minutes trying to delete all my 4000+ emails, 50 at a time and rather just have the same option as the trash folder has, which is to empty the ENTIRE folder.

    • Auto forward

      I would like the ability to set an auto forward to another email account. Encrypted or unencrypted, at least give us the option

      • Protonmail is too expensive. Offer the option to buy features for life

        I find paying 4 euros per month too expensive.
        I would suggest adding the possibility to buy more features like adding more addresses, more filters rules or more GB for life.

        • Undo send

          I would like to see an "Undo Send" feature, as found in Gmail. This is essentially a delay in sending, I guess, during which you can click an "Undo" link that appears in the bottom of the screen after you have hit "Send" on an email, for a varying amount of time that you can set (ex. 20 seconds). This gives you the chance to abort the send and tweak the message if, after hitting send, you realized you had forgotten something or you wanted to change the tone. It's something I find I use quite often for work.

          • On ipad make it possible to login by using fingerprint.

            On ipad make it possible to login by using fingerprint.
            That would be safer as it now is but also much easier as remember complicated password that can be forgotten easy

                  • Support port 53 for VPN configuration

                    Support using UDP port 53 for ProtonVPN.

                    Why? Because wifi networks often require you to submit information on login pages. They also usually don’t block port 53 before you give them info. This can then be used to connect to ProtonVPN while bypassing the WiFi network’s login page.

                    • Protonmail security pitfalls

                      Guys,

                      I just came across this paper in which they claim to have found a lot of security pitfalls in ProtonMail.

                      https://eprint.iacr.org/2018/1121.pdf

                      I think it is important to address and respond to this claims, don't you?

                      I honestly started to worry after I read it.

                      Thanks,

                      • 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.

                            • Have many new Therapists I want to bring to ProtonMail however they have 2 important needs.

                              These many new Therapist need the following 2 features, lack of these may prevent them from coming on board with Protonmail.
                              1. They need emails sent to non-Protonmail clients to default to encrypted rather than having to remember to click on the padlock.

                              2. They need a delivery receipt, this is when they get paid when they get a delivery receipt on their current encryption email system they want to move away from and to ProtonMail.

                              Is there a way to do this now that I am not aware of?
                              They will be using the webbased Protonmail page and iphone,…

                                I would love to see yubi key support as a 2FA method of Authentication, similar to what LastPass does. It would be great if it could be the only way to authenticate(no other 2FA methods if Yubi keys is enabled)

                                • Franz ProtonMail Plugin That Does Not Require Logging in Each Time

                                  Franz (meetfranz.com) is a super simple, yet amazing way to combine all your messaging services. I've built a Plugin for Franz for ProtonMail (it's super easy), but the problem is that I have to log back into ProtonMail each time I login to Franz, which makes it not worth using with ProtonMail. Any chance of getting a ProtonMail plugin for Franz that does not require logging in each time Franz is restarted?

                                    • Pertaining to ProtonMail portable app, it would greatly speed matters if we could batch move our mail to designated folders from Inbox.

                                      When one has a great deal of daily mail like I do, I would like to be able to search for a specific sender, then batch them together and move them into the appropriate folder. After sorting through all my mail, then I can Select those emails I want to read. It would all go so much faster.

                                        Create an app that makes all invasive permissions on google apps and any apps that steal user info become encrypted to the point of unretrievable including creating a special protonmail server all hacker needed details scrambled and unusable with a constantly changing algorithm. Also making a certain set of letters that serve as a script to be able to be used with any email carrier making just the emails follow protonmail protocol. Also another idea I have is just have a transfer bar to completely switch and transfer all email info entirely while at the same time erasing all the…

                                        • Add keywords to e-mails + search by keywords

                                          Search is still something that is difficult to resolve.

                                          I propose that when we have an e-mail with important content in the body, we can add "tags" or "keywords" to the e-mail that will be searchable.
                                          These keywords would not be visible on the main inbox and only when we open the e-mail.

                                          With this feature, we could add keywords to e-mails that we know we may need to access in the future.

                                          For example: We have an e-mail with subject "Job Tomorrow." In the body, we are given an sFTP login for sending data to a client. We would…
