  1. 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.

    • one-time password for encrypted messages to non-protonmail users

      My healthcare provider sent me a mail informing that I had to retrieve a private message from their secured servers. Clicking the link in my mail kicked of a 2nd mail containing an expiring OTP. Only after entering the OTP I was able to retrieve the message. I've seen this approach used by other services as well, the advantage being that you don't have to negotiate a password beforehand. It can be a nice improvement to the current implementation of sending encrypted messages to non-protonmail users.

      • Encryption tools like Facebook PGP

        The notification email from the service contains a lot of personal information.
        For example, when I shop on Amazon, my mailbox will be sent a lot of personal information, such as my real name, my address, and the things I bought. In spite of this, the notification email has not been encrypted.
        I think this is a big problem.
        Therefore, we believe that by providing the public key to the service, such as Facebook PGP, we need a mechanism to encrypt the notification email from the service via PGP. So, I want you to develop software that summarizes that functionality…

          • There should be a backup feature provided for paying customers.

            There should be a backup feature provided for paying customers. We need the ability to backup all email and folders to a local drive. The recent VFMail disaster demonstrates how vulnerable some email providers can be. I encourage you to provide this support as soon as possible. Consider this suggestion as an additional enhancement to your current email software.

            • bridge

              I want to use Proton Bridge but I can't because I am not a paid subscriber.
              I want to pay but you make it very difficult to find where to sign up and begin paying.
              I've searched high and low but cannot find it.
              Make it easy to find.....

              • Let us disable the spam filter!

                Why force it? I only get false mails in spam and then don‘t notice them. Let us decide if we want it.

                  "Accounts that are inactive for over 3 months may be automatically deleted."
                  Please consider altering that policy. Three months is way too short a time!

                  Why not 1-2 or more years instead of 3 months?

                  • Make the difference between Mailing Lists and Contact Groups

                    In version 3.15 "Contact Groups" has been introduced for paid users. This feature was highly wanted, however it does not behave as what people should expect but rather as "mailing list". The current feature groups email addresses of contacts, not contacts themselves. Hence if a contact does not have an email stored it cannot be added to a group (many of us want to have phone contacts also stored in PM), or on the other hand, contacts with multiple emails have to be added for each of their emails to the group.

                    The requested feature improve is having two clearly…

                    • Refresh button for custom folders

                      Custom folders in the web client need a refresh button, just like Inbox, Drafts, Sent, Starred, Archive, Spam, and Trash.

                      ProtonMail allows filters to route messages straight to custom folders, skipping the Inbox. Messages can also be moved to custom folders using desktop clients over the Bridge. However, in the web client there is no button to refresh these folders, so there is no way to check for new incoming messages without first navigating back to a default folder.

                            • 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!

                                • Multi user too expensive

                                  1 user, 1 domain = 48€/year
                                  If you need 2 users, 1 domain = 150€/year
                                  Why a so big price increase when you need 2 users ? Could you have an better offer, for example at 70€/year. Seems more logical.

                                  Best regards

                                    • Delayed Send | Schedule Send

                                      Please create a feature that would allow a delayed sent on email. A 30 second to 1 minute delay send would be fantastic. Schedule send is another great option.

                                      • Bridge for macos airmail

                                        I use Airmail on my mac and my ios devices, and Bridge would be the fact to buy a plan.

                                        Thanks

                                        • Proton Calendar

                                          Is it possible to add an proton calendar? I must note all my meetings. It is possible to creat something like google calendar?

                                          Thanks you for your support.
