        • Terminal Client on Linux

          Wouldn't it be cool if we had a protonmail terminal client on Linux? I really don't want to use browser for reading emails sometimes...

            almost 95% of my thousands of (generated) e mail addresses passing threw abine.com / blur... what happens if their server is down?

            would be nice if there would be a least an other competitor

            why not include on prontonmail.com ?

                  It’s taking me 30 mins a day to delete 100-200 emails this is time consuming and damn right idiotic that the feature isn’t here already

                        • Protonmail App for Android is Very Slow

                          Hello Protons,

                          I use Proton mail as my central and master repository for all email correspondence (paid-up). However I'm finding its slow performance in android is really killing my productivity and my frustration is at breaking point; now looking to find alternatives.

                          I understand that a full encrypted service such as protonmail may never achieve the same level of responsiveness as other apps like Gmail, however there is a limit at which no longer becomes usable.

                          I find the app to be excessively laggy, I wait for actions to respond, by which time I've moved on elsewhere in the app…

                          • Sub-folders.

                            Okay, you've added folders, but only one level. This cannot be considered a top tier email platform for anyone in business until and unless it has the ability for sub-folders (nested). As someone who routinely has thousands of emails in a month, and the need to preserve these emails for regulatory purposes, it's an absolute must to organize them appropriately.

                            Labels/Tags/Single-layer folders are useless and a poor imitation of GMAIL and YAHOO. I want ProtonMail to be superior to those other platforms. More like Exchange/Outlook, without the MSFT bugs.

                            • Anonymous payment method

                              As noted by previous poster(s), anonymity doesn't work if using a valid credit card or paypal. There are payment services which accept gift cards and they process them as cash. This way the gift cards can be purchased closer to anonymous. (Nothing is "absolutely" anonymous, but credit cards are certainly not anonymous.)

                              • Gulden payment

                                Gulden is a crypto currency designed for payment.

                                Gulden in its current state has the ability to handle 40 transactions per second, but can easily be scaled as needed.

                                Gulden on the other hand uses an average transaction fee of NLG 0.01 (€ 0.0020 +/-) irrespectively of the traffic on the Gulden network.

                                Gulden payments take now around 15 minutes but it will be reduced to 150 seconds (with the Prime I update of the network).

                                Nocks.com allows merchants to directly convert a payment into Gulden in Euro at the current market price.

                                The merchant is no longer subject to…

                                • A barebones plan

                                  A 'basic' price plan between 'free' and 'plus', that is a lot cheaper than the $/€4 per month 'plus' plan. The price covers the running costs of a 'free' account, and should provide less of a shock to the system of cash-strapped people used to free (albeit not private) email.

                                  The added features over the 'free' plan would be Protonmail Bridge, so emails & attachments can be downloaded, as the 500MB capacity fills very fast even with just standard usage, and the option to remove the signature "Sent with ProtonMail Secure Email" (default setting would be signature included). I would…

                                    There are already great mail clients on Android and iOS available. It would be nice if I could use them with protonmail as well.

                                    • Decentralize Protonmail onto Hashgraph or Blockchain

                                      Put Protonmail in a decentralized place where not even the Swiss gov. can't shut it down and Hashgraph or Blockchain similar technology would be great for it if somehow possible and make it open source.

                                        • POP3.

                                          I eschew Webmail wherever i can, strongly preferring local-pc client-based email / PIM functionality [currently Thunderbird, with POP3]. It remains greatly inconvenient to me that you still do not have POP3 support. No, i do not care at all about your mobile apps... useless to me... i want it on my pc with POP3. I would stop using ProtonMail altogether [due to this problem] if it wasn't for the fact that you have such excellent security criteria... but i persist with the Webmail-only access under sufferance. PLEASE give POP3 support.
