  1. Print email from iPad/iPhone

    I may be missing something, but I have been unable so far to print a protonmail email from my iPad. I am able to print PDF file attachments, but not email. Is this feature available? If so, would greatly appreciate knowing how this is done.

    • Offer a $1 per month account with 1GB / 1 alias, to compete with competition

      I chose the competitor over protonmail as this was not offered. I would prefer to use protonmail however, as everything about them is better than competitor except the price.
      Of course, if what I say is true, then why would you not expect to pay more? I do, I just want my cake and to eat it to!
      So... have a $1 per month "Basic" account with features between the Free account and the PLUS account.

          • Browsing emails when in full view layout

            When in full view layout, it would be cool to have buttons to browse emails, like two arrows, one pointing up and the other pointing down, to go to the next/last email.

            • Folders, folders, folders. (Please! Please! Please!)

              Customisable folders are surely essential for an email account?

              • Allow customization of iOS notification sounds

                The current iOS notification sound is the generic iOS notification sound. Allowing users to choose their own notification sound, or at least adding a unique one to the app, would prevent ProtonMail notifications being mistaken for lower-priority notifications from other apps. I know this is probably a lower-priority request itself, but I think it would be very useful to users, nonetheless.

                      • Add facility to know about failed mails.

                        I think there should be an feature which allows us to know about the failed mails which could not be sent due to some reasons. It will help a lot to the people who are sending many mails on daily basis and they dont have time to figure out how many mails successfully sent.
                        I am very lucky to be here.

                        Thanks. check my article here on how to block ads in apps http://luckypatcher.me/

                        • Now that immigration will be searching phones, I need to be able to hide protonmail app from searches.

                          US is proposing to search phones, including phone contacts and apps. We need to be able to conceal the Proton app from such searches. A password isn't enough; they can order you to unlock the app.

                          • Web login without javascript

                            for anonymity purposes i would suggest to implement the feature to login and use protonmail without javascript. Specually for the .onion site.

                            • Security - auto lock out of ProtonMail with timer limit.

                              In the browser when using ProtonMail, it'd be nice to have a timer that auto log-out or locks the access to the mail system after a predefined amount of time - also linked to Sleep status of the computer / smartphone system. This would limit accidental access to the mail system even if there's access to the physical hardware (=computer / smartphone).

                              • Better Printing Formatting and Results

                                When choosing to print an email, it gets very badly reformatted. This is ok for casual note but highly unacceptable for important information.

                                  • Applying encoding/decoding and DS algorithms of other vendors/developers/standards

                                    It is vulnerable and less attractive to use only one provider of encoding algorithms (american). What about others? Some trust more in others, It is ia matter of legalization too, where it is prohibited to use non-local ciphers..

                                    • Most common buttons highlighted

                                      Improve the User experience by simply highlighting buttons commonly used like the "Reply" button which should be found quickly and the "Delete" button in the Trash section. That part is also confusing, when you move an email to the Trash and then you have to Delete what's in the trash with a different icon showing, everything goes to the Trash anyway, why two names and icons for the same thing!?.
                                      I found that Optional icon set could be improved overall so you don't spend time searching. It's confusing! make it Bold & Simple.
                                      Otherwise its great!
                                      Thank you!

                                      • Possibility to send maxi attachments (like 2 GB or so)

                                        There is an italian email provider that allows to send maxi attachments till 2 GB ( https://mail.tiscali.it/ ). Basically the attachment that goes over 8 MB i think, is detected as Maxi Attachment and uploaded on their server for a maximum of 7 days. In the email instead of the attachment, is uploaded the link to the file on tiscali's servers

                                        • One-time encryption password

                                          Office365 (I use for work) uses a one-time password for the recipient of an encrypted email. This is very convenient for the recipient and alleviates the need to give the recipient the password verbally or by other inconvenient and possible insecure means. Would be a great new feature.
                                          Thanks.
