Forwarding email from protonmail
It would be great if we had the option to forward email to other email providers. services.

5 years and counting! The fact that there is still no response on this issue speaks volumes…
This is such a basic feature to be missing, and is essential in my use case. How is this not available? Reading the comments, it appears I just wasted time and money creating the account.
In order to use Proton mail with my domain for my family, I need that some emails of this domain be forwarded automatically,
This is essential to me.

Occasionally I need to forward a cleartext email from Zoom and the few others (such as twitter & FB)) for which I use use my ProtonMail account for anonymity.

I wanted to send a message to a small group with the salutation being individual names. Could not see how to do that, so ended up laboriously creating individual emails, 3 at a time (max allowed). Could not use controlA to select and copy because that goes elsewhere in Protonmail. Tried forwarding to myself - what???? No forwarding?? You're kidding!
In my case, I have a joint GMail account for both myself and my wife that we use for doctors appointments and joint financial matters. I have messages set to forward to me from that account and automatically apply a label, but I would like to then forward from my account to her email so she also has a copy. I want the forward to come from me so she knows it's legitimate.

So what if anything is going to be done Proton?
Everyone forewords mail including your staff. Besides receiving mail the ability to forward it is a no brainer.
Please issue a concise answer right away.

Please fix this!! We need this ASAP. We respect the privacy but I just need to forward emails to myself for track record....
i'd like to be able to use the @pm.me address as my default and just want to forward mail from my current default, without having to change every contact over etc

I moved my custom domain over from G****. Over there, I was just forwarding that custom domain to my G**** account. And also forwarding my wife's address on that custom domain to her G**** account. I would like to continue to forward her custom domain address to her G**** account so she doesn't kill me.

I am trying VERY hard to get my family migrated to Protonmail and this is a show stopper. Just to pile on a tad, most of us are influencers in our respective organizations where a product like Protonmail, if fully features with auto-forward, would be welcome. Fortune 500 software and insurance as well as law enforcement. It's a small ask for a big payback, let the user make their own choices about encryption, we can already manually forward email, it's just horribly inefficient.
I need this fuctionality

Is there a response from Protonmail to this functionality request?
Gabriel González Santomé commented
Please this is basic functionality, could you please add it as part of the filtering?
Nathan Clayton commented
Ideally this would be accomplished in Sieve via the `redirect` feature.

I think I'm leaving Protonmail at the end of my current subscription. The lack of ability to handle emails into their own accounts with custom domains IE: All mail dumps into the primary account and all sent mail also dumps into the primary account. Also the lack of forwarding, yes I'm aware that forwarding would strip the encryption but after all, it should be by choice to do that.

Holy cow, I can't believe auto forward is NOT an option with Protonmail. I am Visionary (paying) Member for mail and VPN, and this needs to be addressed if you're to keep my business long term.
This feature is absolutely essential to using Protonmail for Business. I realize the issue may have something to do with "Protonmail cannot create a filter based on email content, because it has no access to your ENCRYPTED content." Encryption and privacy is the whole holy point of Protonmail. But the whole point of EMAIL is being able to communicate more instantaneously between various senders/receivers. And the whole point of email filtering/forwarding is to be able to instantaneously pass on a message which one receives. The instantaneous passing of this message might be ABSOLUTELY INDISPENSABLE to a person's email use/platform use.
There must be SOME way to be able to filter/forward at least, perhaps by SENDER. What if a user "authorized" Protonmail to do a decryption, filter, forward, and then immediately re-encrypt and/or delete the unencrypted content that was scanned to trigger the forward? I don't know if this is possible to do in a secure cyber-environment. But if Protonmail could find a way to do it, it would be a HUGE advertising point for upgrading to paid-level accounts. Could this be done by somehow running the filter check via the Proton Drive environment? Don't mind me, I'm no expert. I mean no harm -- I just really would love to see the filter/forward feature in Protonmail.
This really needs to happen ASAP. Had I known this basic, near universal feature was not present I'm not sure I would have signed up to this service.
Guess I'll start figuring out how to move elsewhere and get a refund....
This feature is necessary for me to continue paying premium plan as I want to move to a different protonmail inbox to separate emails under my old and new surname to keep receiving copy of new ones on second email but keep old ones here. Please implement this basic email feature... I can't believe this has not been done already! I am cancelling my premium based purely on lack of this feature.
