  1. Enable using a + sign in the address when sending to protonmail

    Add the ability to send to user+text@protonmail.com and have the email delivered to user@protonmail.com, but with the original address intact.

    This is useful to keep track of who is sending you the email. Say you are signing up for mailinglist "somelist", you could sign up using user+somelist@protonmail.com.

    This would be even more useful if you could define automatic tagging based on what is after the plus sign.

    • Option to delete/move multiple emails in one move

      I would like to be able to move multiple emails to trash or archive in one move.

      How can I do this?

      Thank you for your support.

      • Labels are great, but...

        I wish to make sub-labels like:
        Shops
        - Shop1
        - Shop2
        --Shop2.1

        Any Mails who are marked as Shop2, is visible on Label "Shops" and in his own label "Shop2" and on the Topviews. But this mail should not be viewable if i Click Shop3.

        For the future, the labels should matched with Oulook Categorys.
        (Outlook for Protonmail with a plugin, who sync all datas between Client and Server encrypted? Also send and reciving mails.)

        I wish to Sort the Labels by click on a second Button, By Name for all Toplabels and by Name all Sub-labels separately.
        Why? I…

        • Transfert de mails suivant certaines règles

          Il serai utile de pouvoir transférer des mails à d'autres adresses suivant certains crières. Peut-être en place lorque vous aurez installé la gestion de règles à d'autres niveaux (gestion automatisée des labels, ....)

          • You could add a very basic and necessary feature such as allowing the user to create FILTERS with VARIOUS options for deletion.

            Allow me to set up filters WITH the ability choose the actions such as "delete with notification" "move to spam" "delete without notification" "move to ----- box" etc. Filters aren't enough, there has to be options for what to do with the filters.

            • snooze and send later

              in gmail some extensions let you snooze a received email (it comes back to inbox at a certain date), or send it later (it creates an outbox folder or label). would you include that?

                • Replace jittery spinner icon

                  Jittery FontAwesome spinners are a known UI bug: https://github.com/FortAwesome/Font-Awesome/issues/671

                  I suggest swapping out the spinner icon with eg an icomoon spinner: http://codepen.io/Keyamoon/pen/aHxuq

                  Not a site-breaking bug by any means, but it might make things look just that little bit nicer.

                  • Save encryption passwords for non-PM contacts, also add a checkbox to send the password as a privnote style second link in the email.

                    When emailing an outside contact, save the encryption password to the contact, so next time you message them it automatically fills in that field with the agreed upon password.

                    So if I message someone and they have a password to access the message, next time I send it would default to encrypted with the same password.

                    You could also add a checkbox to send the password in the actual email as a second link that destroys when read, (just like privnote, which is how I send my passwords anyway)

                      • Use fuzzy search in contact search (when composing)

                        Given the name "Michael Denver" you have to enter all the letters in order for it to be found. Should also work with:
                        - "mic den"
                        - "denver michael"
                        - "mi d"

                        • Make encrypted mail to outside addresses more like a persistent chat while browser session is open

                          when sending email to addresses outside of protonmail, the recipient should be dropped into an interface that is more chat-like after entering the message password, so if there is back and forth messaging with the sender a new password doesn't need to be set each time and a new link doesn't need to be received and followed

                            We intend to switch all internal e-mail communikation to Protonmail. It would be very helpfull if it was possible to define groups of contacts.

                            • OpenPGP mail with resend capacity (like a Nym server)

                              I think it is more simple to express the idea with an example. But it is kind of an old school nym server capacity.

                              Alice want to send a secure message to Bob. She can't connect directly to Protonmail for technical reason. Let say she is stuck with a really poor data connection. But she can receive email using an mail client (like alpine)...

                              How can she contact Bob if he can't use GPG because it is too complex for him.

                              Alice send an encrypted message to alice+resend@protonmail.ch encrypted with protonmail public key and digitally sign with alice registered openPGP…

                                • La sélection de mails est perdu après une opération (affectation de libellés, ....)

                                  Lorsque l'on sélectionne plusieurs mails et que l'on applique un libellé ou les marquer comme lu, la sélection des mails est perdu et nous devons à nouveau les sélectionner afin d'effectuer une seconde opération. La sélection, soit les mails "cochés", devrait subsister après une opération sur ces derniers.

                                  • Show the number of new messages (if any) in the window title bar

                                    Have the current window's title include the number of new messages, e.g. ProtonMail (2).

                                    I run PM in a separate window and it would be helpful if I could see from the window list on the taskbar if there are new messages, rather than having to open up the mail window.
