ProtonMail

  1. Increase polling frequency for new messages

    Most mail services poll for new mail at regular intervals. i.e., I send a new message to my gmail account, and it is visible in gmail generally in 15-120s.

    With Protonmail, I waited for over half an hour with no updates. A page refresh brings up new messages, but of course this isn't particularly convenient.

    Auto-mated polling with a higher frequency should address this.

  2. Option to send attachments unencrypted

    Ive found Gmail is rejecting encrypted attachments as a security risk.

  3. Clear formatting function should switch to plain text without stripping line breaks

    The mail composition clear formatting function should switch existing text contents in the mail window simply to plain text WITHOUT stripping the carriage return / line breaks. Presently, Protonmail web mail defaults to HTML mode composition, but it would be useful to switch to plain text composition WITHOUT causing (especially) the quoted text from the e-mail that the user is replying to, to lose carriage returns / line breaks when switching to plain text mode.

  4. Improve Placement of Reply & Forward Functions; Differentiate Back Function

    The reply, forward, etc. functions are far to the right of the e-mail you are reading and not presented contextually (on a small windows 8 machine). Also, the arrow to move back to list view is nearly the same visually as the already-established-by-other-sites reply arrow. The two are confusing and I frequently think one is the function of the other.

  5. Donations

    Hello Protonmail team,
    Is there possible to implement another type of payment for donations?

    How about banking transfer?

    I do not have PayPal / Bitcoin accounts.

    Thanks

  6. UTC instead of GMT

    I suggest using the acronym UTC instead of GMT. (The Wikipedia article on UTC says, "GMT is no longer precisely defined by the scientific community.")

  7. Reply to an email (cursor focus issue)

    Whenever I click on the "reply" button to reply to an email, I always have to "click" in the email text/body to begin typing. Why not simply default the mouse/cursor to be in the correct position so that I can immediately begin typing?

  9. 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.

  11. 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. :)

  13. 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.

    In the Compose of new email the To field should get input focus automatically, so users could type in recipient(s) immediately.

  16. Remove support for old security standards

    Time to time we observe attacks basing on downgrading protocol (POODLE) or cipher (FREAK).

    I would recommend dropping support for old standards (TLS v1.0, non-FS ciphers suites) to stay secure even when new downgrade-type attacks appear.

    Setup should be verified using Qualys SSL test or similar tool.

  18. Take stable coins as crypto, BTC technically creates taxable transaction in US.

    Take stable coins as crypto, BTC technically creates taxable transaction for US citizens. USDC and XCHF (Swiss Francs) would be good choices. Some folks will complain about gas on Ethereum network, but those are on their way down.

  19. Increment the current 20 secs max time for undo send feature

    I think the current max time for the "undo send" feature is too short, it would be nice to be able to optionally increase it to 30 or 40 seconds.

    Regards

  20. Remember selected messages after entering 1 message and removing it

    In gmail if you want to cleanup your mail you can select few messages, enter another one (to decide if you want it removed or not), delete it and then you are taken back to messages list with other messages still selected.
    When I tried to do same thing in proton all messages were deselected. Please add "memory" of selected messages after performing operation on single message in preview menu.
