    • Widget for mobiles app

      It would be great to have a small widget like it exist for the Gmail app on Android. Not sure it is currently possible for IOS.

      • Add option to reject emails based on sender

        I would like the option to reject emails from specific senders.
        Specific email addresses or domains could be added to a blacklist.
        Senders in the blacklist would be under two categories:

        (A) Blocked
        (B) Appear as Blocked

        (A) If an incoming email is from a sender in the "Blocked" group the server would send an "undeliverable" message to the sender and the sender's email would not appear in my Inbox or my spam box at all.

        (B) If an incoming email is from a sender in the "Appear as Blocked" group the server would send an "undeliverable" message to the…

        • Make the encrypted mail option more obvious and give the option to have all outgoing email encrypted by default

          Tutanota puts a big colored button under the subject to make it very visible whether outgoing mail is encrypted or not. Also, there is an option to encrypt ALL outgoing mail by default. Implementing this feature will prevent a lot of mistakes by accidentally sending mail in plaintext.

            • Add in pin password or touch id protection to iOS App

              Have an option in the iOS app where you can enable a pin password or touch id password requirement everytime you open the app. Something simple just to keep your email from being snooped through, if your phone is open/unlocked. If you've ever used the Serverauditor app they have a similar feature and I find it very useful.

              • Increase number of mail addresses for custom domain in "Protonmail Plus" plan

                Right now only 5 custom domain email addresses are supported for the smales "Protonmail Plus" plan. It's ok to charge 4€ per month for a custom domain but i would say 10 addresses would be fair and not just 5.
                Please increase the number of allowed email aliases to 10.

                • Moving the Save button further away from the Send button

                  Thank you for being there and making ProtonMail available.

                  Sometimes, after receiving an email, I have some things I would want to touch on in my reply but I do not have the time or the state of mind to fully reply. So I would press reply and write some words that I can use afterwards as reminders and then save the message as a draft.

                  I have a constant concern, when saving a draft, to not press Send instead of Save, since these buttons are next to each other.

                  • Compress long recipient lists

                    I'm on a university mailing list run by people who don't know how to work a mailing list. One of the crazy things they do is include the email address & name of every single recipient (i.e. every CS student at the uni) in the `To` field.

                    When I view those messages in ProtonMail's UI, the "To: ..." list of names takes up my entire screen. Other email UIs tend to show the first three or so, then have an "expand" button to show the rest on demand.

                    • Move Sent Mail to Inbox

                      I would sometimes like to move sent mail from the Sent Mail folder to my Inbox. However, there is no way to do this directly. One must first delete sent mail from the Sent Mail folder, then move it from the Trash to the Inbox. Thus, two operations that should be one. Moreover, I have repeatedly seen sent mail thus trashed and then restored to the Inbox automatically removed from the Inbox without my instruction and restored to the Sent Mail folder, thus necessitating the two operations again. I do not mind if, after moving a Sent Mail email to…

                      • Phone Number Recovery and Block Incoming Messages From...

                        Hi, I would like to see options to use for a lost password on my account, I know that there is an option to use another email as a Password Reset but I do think that using a my own real Phone number to reset password is much better and more secure.

                        Also I would like the option to Block Incoming Messages from any website IP Address or from someones computer IP Address.

                          • Trash & Archive icons

                            Hi, the two icons for "Archive" and "Trash" an e-mail seems confusing: they are located next from each other and have a similar design.
                            In my opinion, changing this might help ProntonMail users.

                                    User support, obviously misleading in the title. Is there a possible way to open this system up to a more distributed base for servers?

                                    I am a student in the IT field, and i love running servers and doing many open source type things when i have resources. I would love to host a server to help with the issue of supporting new users. I understand their might be security and logistical concerns. However, if this could be packaged in some way that allowed the user base to help provide servers in a secure way i would do this. Perhaps…

                                      I'd like to see linked tags that behave like radio buttons (only one can be applied at any time; speeds processing).

                                      I believe that by extending your tagging system in this way, you'd multiply the usefulness of your application. By implementing this functionality as tags, you give the user the flexibility to customize their experience in a way that programming into the UI would not.

                                      To create a tag set:
                                      1. Users create tags as usual (e.g., 2do or Location)
                                      2. If they want a group of tags where only one can be applied at a time, they add a…

                                        • Log password changed events?

                                          I changed the password for decryption and went to the security area. To my little surprise I saw no log about that in advanced mode. I thought this event should be of some importance to be logged.

                                          But yes on the other hand I'm also not sure if this function will be practical since if someone else has changed your decryption password, you could then say goodbye to the log and other things. If change was made to the login password, you're locked out of account(but still possible to recover the entrance). So this remains to be discussed...
