Open the next email automatically after deleting or moving the first one
When I delete a message I want to go directly to the next email, instead of going to the inbox and then click the next email.
This feature is a simple one, but when you have to read a lot of emails it saves a lot of time.
It is available both in Gmail and Yahoo.
Thank you for your attention.
This is critical for me to keep using the product.
This would be a large boost in productivity for a relatively small amount of effort. Even without power users in mind, it would be so much easier and efficient to open the next email automatically instead of clicking "Down" -> "Enter" or manually clicking on the next email.
What else are you going to do, stare at the "You have x conversations stored in this folder" message?
Its totally unbelievable that you seem to ignore this request that came 8 years ago. Please show us that you care at all by at least commenting your thoughts for this request.
This is an absolute must for me. For those that don’t want it, make it a setting.
It constantly amazes me how Proton ignores basic UI stuff like this. Webmail has been around for decades, just copy the basics that Gmail, Outlook, Yahoo, Fastmail, etc have all trained users to expect, and differentiate your product by its great security features rather than it's unfriendly interface.
I would want this not only after deleting, but on other actions such as marking as spam, archiving, or moving the email to another folder.

Coming over from M365 / Outlook for Mac, and this is a critical workflow item for me to triage email on a daily basis quickly. We were about to move our company over to Proton for Business but are hesitant now seeing something as simple as this lingering for years.
Does someone at Proton really user their own interface with keyboard shortcuts?
****, didn't know this wasn't possible. Feels like it's a standard thing that I had with gmail / fastmail for years.
When is this coming out? I want to switch to protonmail but this really slows my workflow
Simply put - this is the reason I haven't been able to stick with ProtonMail. And if I can't stick with Mail, then I'm not sticking with Calendar, Pass, VPN, etc...
Fastmail do it perfectly - an option in the settings. Keeps everyone happy.

Simply put: after 20 years with Gmail, I need this feature.
Which engineer want's an easy ticket with a bunch of cheering customers upon completion... it's an easy win and the professionals that are trying to use protonmail will appreciate it. Here is the user story.
"User does inbox zero. User opens Protonmail. First email in list is opened. User uses G+T to trash the email. Next email is automatically selected/opened."
The value prop being that the user never left the keyboard. Currently, after pressing G+T you have to use your mouse to select the next email - making the keyboard shortcuts nearly useless considering you are jumping back and forth from mouse to keyboard.
Once again... this is a super easy win. I have a visionary account because I've actually replaced Google with Proton. I think it's safe to assume other professionals (who are likely high paying members) are the ones upvoting this request. Casual/free users likely won't care for things like inbox zero.
Thanks for all the hard work you do! I love watching the progress over the years :)
Not sure what good it will be to add a vote and It's disappointing to see a highly requested feature going back to 2016 not addressed. It certainly puts pause in my decision to pay for and fully switch to Proton.

I'm also reviewing proton mail as a replacement for Gmail. I would really like to switch to proton mail or something else, paying for it would be a no-brainer for me. But the lack of this feature also makes me want to continue my search for a replacement.
But I see its been 7 years, so its obvious we should expect that it will never be.

This would take a front-end developer 5 to 10 minutes to change (source: I am a front-end developer). I am surprised how long this ticket has been open.
Please implement this ASAP
Hi - I would like it to be an option I could toggle on or off.
I keep checking in to see if Protonmail has added this, waiting to buy because otherwise this is unusable. It needs to be in the mobile and web app please!
As others have said this is a must have feature of any email service, please consider adding this ASAP!

Email marketing is one of the most economically efficient ways to spread the word about your business or make a sale. A 2015 study by the DMA discovered that email offers an average $38 return on investment for every $1 invested (ROI). Customers frequently check their favourite retailers' emails when prepared to make a purchase. However, as email usage increases, it might not be easy to stand out in overflowing inboxes. buy email accounts from
