  1. Please follow accessibility standards.

    Please insure accessibility standards are followed as you improve the PM site, but also the upcoming mobile apps.

    This is actually much easier than it sounds. Simply make sure all hyperlinks and controls have proper accessibility labels, so that buttons can be read by a screen-reader as for example, "Mark as Spam", rather than "link" or "button", which is what happens when there is no label.

    Some hyperlinks on the existing site have no labels, so I'm left guessing as to what they are intended for. Clicking upon each is the only way for me to determine its purpose, which…

        • Toolbar tooltips

          The toolbar on the top right of the page with icons which contains the three buttons for REPLY, FORWARD, etc should have tool tips appearing when mousing over them, just like the text formatting bar in the composition window.

          • Resending a wrongly adressed mail

            In case a typing message happend in the target email adress and the mail is stored after sending into nirvana I miss the possibilty to change the email adress in the adress field to send it again right away out of the sent folder. The point is: No need to compose it entirely egain.

            • Email preview pane from any folder

              Separate from the list of emails provide option to also display a preview pane and is scrollable to view entire email (vs just the first x number of lines in the email).

              Should minimally be available within the inbox but preferable for any folder ... once support for folders and sub-folders are added. :)

                • Non-ProtonMail users should be able to reply securely

                  Since everyone is not on PM (yet..), I cannot seem to justify adoption of PM until the reply is secure as well.

                  • Secure login with cellphone?

                    There is a concept of performing secure login by signing message with private key stored on your mobile device. Message is displayed on computer screen as QR code, you scan it with your phone, and then phone sends signed message to protonmail servers. No sensitive data sent over the internet, no keylogger problem, very hard to perform man-in-the-middle attack.

                    There are two implementations i know about: First is standalone app SQRL (avialiabe in google play), second is is BitID standard that was created with bitcoin clients in mind - its implemented in BitID Authenticator and Mycelium Testnet wallet (both also…

                        • Better/Sharper website Background

                          Hello,

                          in my opinion it would be more beautiful/professionel if the background of your website look more sharper. I like it like it is but if it would be sharper it would look more modern and more professionel. :)

                          • dead mans switch

                            set something up where if your account goes inactive (no log in etc) for a settable period of time a preset email will be sent to a preset address.

                            example i set up something so if i dont log in in 3 or 14 or 30 or 90 days etc (let us choose how long) a message i have already set up for this will be sent..

                            this would have a few uses and is also a pretty decent fallback to losing your account info if you dont set a 2nd account.. you could even send yourself your own forgotten…

                                User ability to send a special link for outside (non-Protonmail) users to send encrypted email to them, but perhaps only from email addresses allowed (to avoid spam or discourage abusive behavior).

                                For Example: I have Gmail, I want to send an encrypted email to a Protonmail user but I do not want to sign up for Protonmail or install PGP. How can I send an encrypted email to a Protonmail address then?

                                With this feature, I can access a Protonmail link via HTTPS given to me by the user which will allow me to send an encrypted email to them.…

                                • Manual "Expire" (Self-Destruct) Button

                                  Manual "Expire" (Self-Destruct) Button allows the user to manually expire an email at any time or expire a self-destruct link before the expiration time.

                                  As it is, let's say your recipient received your private link and read the message one hour after you sent it, but the self-destruct time was set for 48 hours. The email link will still be accessible until the expiration time. A manual Expire button would resolve that.

                                  • Why do you have two sidebars on the right hand side of the compose email window?

                                    Why do you have two sidebars on the right hand side of the compose email window? - it's unnecessary & obstructive.

                                    It wastes a lot of time switching from one to the other.
                                    Otherwise your interface is very 'clean' and quick and easy to use.

                                    Please just put in one sidebar on the right.

                                      • Anonymizer email address

                                        Like Craigslist, you should be able to anonymize your reply and your email address per transaction. It could change for every reply if needed or CC with trash email address that get automatically dropped. This allow man in the middle spoofing for outside mail harder.
