  1. Upgrades which dont require replacing the application and having to reconfigure everything from scratch.

    Upgrades are so painful on the Mac we don't do them. They require downloading a new app, overwriting the old app with the new one (you have to manually kill the running protomail to do this - novice users wont know how to do this). Then outlook is broken - you cant send or receive emails. You have to manually reconfigure everything from scratch. This is not easy. Each upgrade is released with just enough time since the last one, that you have forgotten how to configure outlook and protomail, so you have google it. the process takes hours.

    • ---> POSTPONE email --->>

      To POSTPONE an existing email and receiving it back to your inbox at an specified future date.

      It would be good to be able to access all posponed emails by creating a new smart tag "POSTPONED"

      Same feature in gmail and other services that gives your inbox ToDo capabilities.

      • Use @pm.me

        I want to pay only for short email @pm.me

        Do you have any packages?

        Or can you create a service package just to use this short email?

          • Support for Mailbird

            It would be great to have support for Mailbird. It was my daily email client until I switched to ProtonMail, ditching GSuite. I can't seem to get them to co-operate.

            • Create filters with a click of a button from an email

              I used filters extensively on Gmail as I get lots of crap where I can't unsibscribe unfortunately, and they are not really spam, so I want to just filter them out without having to go to the Settings > Filters etc...

                • Encrypt contact and subject line as well as attachments

                  Protonmail should encrypt the whole format of the email not just the content, The contact, subject line and attachments should be encrypted as well as its implemented in the tuatanota encrypted email app. That way less Metadata is available and the email as a whole is encrypted more

                    • Dark theme would be ideal.

                      Dark themes would be ideal and it would be easier on the eyes.

                      • Keep as "unread"

                        I would like to be able to open an email, and then mark it as "unread" if I'm unable to respond at the time.

                        • Academic pricing

                          We should be encouraging schools (universities, colleges, high schools) to using secure email. Discounted or free premium features should be offered to this type of client.

                          • All mail page buttons

                            I think the page buttons (top right corner) are very un-intuitively positioned. All the controls are on the left side and that's where I always looked. In fact I discovered the page buttons by accident as I was looking in 'All mail' and could only see very recent emails.
                            The page buttons should be re-positioned to the left side of the controls. Ideally they should be bigger than they are now and only pop up when there are enough emails to fill up the page.

                            • hiding labeled posts!

                              if I don't want to see travel expense emails in my inbox but want all of them labeled automatically, this would be handy.

                              same applies for newsletters and other news website updates. sometimes you need to work, so hiding theese labeled emails is also useful.

                              thank you!

                                  • Upgrade Existing Service: SEGWIT ADDRESS for all BTC transactions

                                    I realize this has been posted, but that was in 2017. I Highly suggest implementing Segwit Support! Transactions will take less time to confirm, and the fees are just a few Cents! Thus, donations would be so much easier as well- someone may donate their spare crytpo amounts much easier.
                                    Regardless, I appreciate the Proton Team very much; they are part of our modern day Freedom hero's, who fight for us all, regardless of country, gender, race, or any other affiliation.

                                    • Support for new and more secure address in Onion "TOR"

                                      You currently have https://protonirockerxow.onion for those using Onion ("TOR"), but this uses old technology (RSA1024, DH1024, AES128, and SHA1) and the new uses better technology for today's age (AES256-CTR, Ed25519, Curve25519, SHA3-256, SHAKE-256 and MAC).
                                      The new address will look like:
                                      l5satjgud6gucryazcyvyvhuxhr74u6ygigiuyixe3a6ysis67ororad.onion
                                      but no worries no one will be remembering this, just add into the bookmarks or write somewhere they feel is safe.
                                      It will be even more difficult to hack and decipher the communications and you can keep the EV certificate of the https to help make sure people is in the right place.

                                      • Compose email from draft

                                        It would be good to have the ability to compose an email from a draft without actually using the saved draft email, i.e. after composing, the draft stays a draft and a copy of the draft is sent.

                                        I figure this should be a fairly straight-forward feature to implement and would be ultra-handy (as I gave up using Thunderbird after a multitude of issues with it).

                                          You can protect the sent mails but not the received mails, if someone receives documents it cannot protect that mail with another password. Let's make possible to protect the received mails with password or biometric data.
