  1. ID for Password Fields

    Please change the ID of the "MailboxPassword" to something like "passphrase" for users of form fillers, such as RoboForm. Right now, login and mailbox password fields use the same ID, so form fillers don't work as intended.

    • Allow defeatable remaining time option for encrypted outside e-mails

      For encrypted e-mails sent to recipients outside of Proton Mail, the ENCRYPTION PASSWORD window should provide an option box to allow the sender to optionally DISABLE the remaining expiry time display for the recipient. There are some scenarios where this could be useful, such as with information that is to be made inaccessible by the sender after a certain amount of time that the e-mail contents is anticipated to be needed.

      By adding this expiry time display disable option box, it would be possible to send encrypted e-mails to outside Proton Mail and the expiry time would NOT be indicated…

      • Hierarchal Tags

        Either (1, preferred) the ability to associate tags with other, more general tags or (2) a hierarchal tagging feature similar to that found in browser bookmarking. The desired result is to shortcut the amount of time it takes to categorize messages so that messages tagged with a project name would also, for example, be associated with a client and project type. (In this post, “tag” refers to a user action and “associating” refers to a programmed action.)

        In the preferred method, the user could relate a tag to one or more Tag Categories when creating the tag. Tag Categories could…

        • Android app should require Decryption password on logon/periodically

          It seems that the phone remembers the decryption key and stores it in some non-volatile memory so that it can show you mail as soon as your phone turns on. I'd like an option that ProtonMail requires the key on first-open so that if my phone gets stolen noone can see my messages. Signal (whisper systems) offers this, and also offers an automatic re-encryption after a configurable idle time

          • migration

            Hi everyone,

            In our company we use "Google Apps for Work" for host the domain for example @abc.com.au my question is that how I can migrate our domain from "Google Apps for Work" to the the ProtonMail?

            • Immediate Message Deletion

              I would like to delete email immediately from my inbox, rather than always having to send it to trash. I would expect it to be under the More menu, not as an individual icon.
              Occasionally, when cleaning up, I find it easier to bypass the trash folder.

                  • Ability to remove quote indent of e-mail text

                    The WYSIWIG editor for e-mail composition does not offer a button for un-quoting a section of text. Sometimes I copy text from an earlier e-mail message into a new e-mail message, but the text is pasted as quote-indented. I would like to retain any formatting, but un indent / un-quote the pasted text.

                    • Custom email Headers

                      Dear sir's, it would be very nice if ProtonMail would allow us to set Custom Headers in an email message, like References: etc. so that users could use ProtonMail via a mail2news Gateway to reply to Usenet postings.

                      • "User Defined & Secure Folders" are not "nice-to-have" they are an essential part of any email system. Without it, the email "is a gadget"!

                        "User Defined Folders" are not "nice-to-have", but they are an essential part of any professional email system. Without it, the email system will remain "a gadget"!
                        This is a given and a must-have!
                        Protonmail can however further differentiate itself from other emails on the market by having these folders "secured".

                          • Expiry time - Finer time increments

                            It would be useful to allow expiry time to include 15 minutes, 30 minutes and 45 minutes. At present, the shortest available expiry time is only 1 hour but there are some scenarios which would require even less expiry time. This should be fairly easy to implement.

                                        • Allow login username to be different from email and aliases

                                          You can effectively make your login username a barrier from even giving hackers a starting point to get into your account. Since with this feature they would need to know your username first. This should squash any determine hacker and allow great protection to long term protonmail accounts for years to come. Thoughts of "working on hacking this account may take time" is diminished wouldnt ya say?
