  1. Can we have few more formatting tools for email body text? Such as text colour, text size, text highlight, insert symbols etc.

        Notify the sender when the recipient has opened the message. In the notification message there could be such details like date and time, duration, location of the recipient (based in the ISP).

          • Disable text cut-and-paste option

            Create an option to disable text cut-and-paste to prevent recipient from creating an unauthorized copy of the email that has an expiration date on it. Also create an option to disable forwarding to another address. Also auto-mark the email for deletion after it expires. Also, allow message recall to immediately lock a message that has been sent.

            • Quoting options: Bottom, top, quote character

              There aren't any quoting options for the compose editor yet. It just does arguably the worst thing, top-quoting while indenting any previous message(s).

              Options that would be nice are:

              * Which quote character to use (default >)
              * Where to quote original messages (top or bottom)

              • Disable auto-quotation in reply

                At the moment, when replying the whole email history gets quoted. It should be possible to opt-out of this feature following privacy concerns, as otherwise the whole history can be hijacked reading only one mail.

                • Sublabel

                  I am a huge fan of labeling mails. Would it be possible to have a subduable under a label? Furthermore, it will be wonderful if we can sort our e-mail into labels automatically if we receive emails from specific email addresses!

                  • Material Design User Interface?

                    I know that is soooo used.. But.. Could you please introduce material design to ProtonMail?
                    It's a simple and awful design!

                    • View mail header and body

                      I can view the email body as html or raw but there is no way to see the full mail header and body, just as it arrived to the server. Do it as simple as it is implemented in Gmail (NOT as crappy as in Outlook).

                          • Send Plain Text E-mail

                            The ability to send email in plain text as an option, like gmail does. Some mailing lists require plain text so this would be very handy.

                              • Contacts Only filter

                                A filter allowing only people on your Contacts list to email you; all other emails get rejected.

                                Unfortunately I have a very common name, not unlike James Smith, so I am often endowed with a plethora of unsolicited emails. I do not want to use numbers and symbols in my email address.

                                A Contacts Only filter would be most beneficial.

                                • More storage space

                                  Would love to see more storage space in general, and an increase in the daily allotment of "forwards" that would prevent getting so easily blocked out of my account, but would still allow good screening of "spammers".

                                  • Add option for browser login to ask five random characters from your password string.

                                    To have the option to *not* use the full password at login, but random digits from it. This has the advantage that even if the entered password digits are captured from keyboard or by other means they won't be useful for another person to log in. The algorithm can reduce the variability if logins come from the same ip address or machine, so that capturing multiple login passwords from the same computer would still not reveal the full string.

                                    • Proper support for format=flowed

                                      Pure text can be nice too (and is smaller and more secure than HTML). Please support format=flowed.

                                      • Several Mailboxes for a single ProtonMail login

                                        If I want to use several ProtonMail mailboxes, It would be simpler to access those with the same ProtonMail account (login)

                                        • Increase Quote Level Button

                                          Please add a button to the email toolbar to increase quote level when writing an email. Currently there is a decrease quote level button, but for me this is useless because I can't ever have an "increased level" to decrease. The tab button doesn't work, obviously, because it shouldn't, but copying increased quote level text and pasting it into the email removes the quote level on paste.

                                          Right now, I have to indicate quotes using >> at the top of each line, which is quite laborious.
