  1. Have multiple inboxes under one account.

    As a protonmail+ user using a custom domain I shouldn't have to use a filter to have my custom domain emails show up in my main inbox. I would suggest having multiple inboxes under 1 account. What I mean is you sign in with your email and you have an inbox for name@protonmail.com, another mailbox for a@domain.tld, and another for b@domain.tld . Under each of these inboxes they can all have their own spam and archive folders and whatnot. This would be much nicer, but for some users as well who prefer a unified inbox protonmail could automatically…

  6. inbound distribution list

    Please create the option to have an inbound email distribution list, e.g. family@domain.com forwards email to multiple inboxes. Basically what gmail is doing with groups.

    family@domain.com -> father@domain.com, mother@domain.com, kid@domain.com.

    Thank you

  8. Add reminders for email OR add emails to (future) calendar

    When a calendar feature comes out, allow emails to be added as an event.

    To allow users to create a future reminder about an email.

    For example i want to beable to follow up on an email in day, week, 2months time, by creating a date and time (and a reminder)

    It would be great to be able to download attachments. How can it be so hard to simply download an attachment? All i should know how to do is send the attachment, and then click a download button but NO, error downloading attachment then some bullshit about encryption. In your response please dont attach anything as one cannot download the fucken thing

  10. How about REALISTIC SetUp process! ... (3rd friggin time!)

    My idea is:
    How about you create a REALISTIC setup process for the user!

    This is the THIRD friggin time Ive tried to set up an account and if everything is not PERFECT the first time, it refuses to let me proceed! ..as in, It will NOT allow a NEW Confirmation to be sent;
    NOR will it allow me to make the correction to the Verification number that may have been mis-typed. (all 3 times????)

    I am using LastPass, but that should have nothing to do with it as I was MANUALLY setting it up - with LP in the…

  11. 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.

  12. "Accounts that are inactive for over 3 months may be automatically deleted." Please consider altering that policy.

    "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?

  13. Allow sending future date to send email.

    This is a feature offered by default in Outlook. To draft an email, set the recipients email addresses, and then set to send the email at a future date with confirmation alert once email is sent.

  15. PGP Smartcard Support

    A moderately happy plus subscriber, however i was disappointed to find i cannot use my own PGP keys that i have stored on my YubiKey. I would hope at the very least in future i will be able to use the ProtonMail Bridge and have it allow me to insert my own PGP encrypted messages with my own keys using GPG4Win without throwing me a 554 error.

    Other ideas for this area:

    * Support PGP smartcards
    * Allow plain IMAP connections to ProtonMail so that i can use my own mail client and handle my own encryption
    * Allow integration…

  16. When Archiving, Mark as Read

    Along with making archiving from the message viewer on the app easier, when those emails are archived they should be marked as read.

  17. Ad revenue

    Add an ad button in protonmail(in the settings) that allows users to choose if they want to see ads.
    There could be options added that allow the user to choose what type of ads they want to see for example tech ads or clothing ads and so on.
    Just think of what this could do for your revenue! You are not crossing any lines as the option to see ads is up to the user.

  18. Ability to export emails

    Have asked for this before and urgently need it if I am to stay using Protonmail. I need the ability to export emails off onto a local drive!!! Please hurry with this, I don't have time to manually export emails!

    Only have a few KB left on my email account and I just do not have the time to pull off all the emails one by one!! This is just simply ridiculous and I am now looking at other systems that offer this essential feature.

  19. Encrypted Contacts app that shows who is calling you

    The main disadvantage of using the ProtonMail app to securely manage contacts on a smartphone is that the person calling you is not shown on the display. The telephone number of the person calling you is not matched with the contacts that are managed within ProtonMail. Therefore I can only see the number that is calling me but not the name of the person.
