  1. *Unlimited* Disposable Email Aliases

    Startmail explains it perfectly. They offer unlimited disposable aliases, which expire within a given amount of time. They also offer custom aliases which can be saved and used indefinitely.

    It is the disposable alias which will help protect privacy, when submiting an email to an untrusted recipient. After all, how much privacy do we have if our fixed emails become the foundation for building and selling our marketing profiles, just as is done by gmail. We limit personal activity virtual trails by disposing of aliases for casual uses. But, unlike custom aliases, which build on our identifiable original email address,…

  2. Chrome / Firefox add-on

    Even the mailbox encrypted, it is possible to subvert the code in your servers - or force ProtonMail to subvert it by court order - to capture users mailbox password and therefore gain access to emails. This is exactly how the HushMail got "busted" some time ago, feeding a specified user a subverted code, that captured the users password to them!

    Systems like BlockChain Wallet use browser add-ons to prevent this from happening. Ever. Since the add-on is used to handle ALL communications from and to the servers, and it decrypts the content from the servers, it does not matter…

  4. YubiKey? Ever? No? Hello?

    The dedicated Protonmail community deserves a real response from the crack team of Protonmail scientists and engineers. When are you implementing Yubikey or are is your tag line just bs?

This is why we created ProtonMail, an easy to use secure email service with built-in end-to-end encryption and state of the art security features.

  6. Encryption of all metadata

    If Protonmail is to be serious about privacy, I don't understand why all metadata isn't kept solely in encrypted form. I just signed up for Scryptmail and any data is kept in encrypted form, unreadable for any third party.

    I don't see why it would be necessary to keep for instance the senders or subject titles in encrypted form when Protonmail doesn't support POP3 or IMAP.

    The problem is that otherwise e-mail is inherently insecure, because if for instance a governmental entity wants to see your account, while they won't have access to the content of your e-mails, they can…

    We have given this quite a bit of thought, but at the present moment, it is not clear the advantages would outweigh the disadvantages.

    The biggest problem is search. Encrypting all metadata would break metadata search entirely on the web client as there is still no efficient way to handle search of encrypted data within a browser.

    Secondly, metadata encryption’s value from a privacy standpoint is also somewhat dubious. Because we ultimately must deliver the message to the recipient, we must know who the recipient is. At the current time, there still isn’t any proven and viable way to work around this.

    Metadata encryption is an area of continued research for us, and when the opportunity arises and the technology for doing this matures, we will definitely implement it in ProtonMail.

  7. Schedule Send Date/Time for Draft Emails Automatically Sent at a Future Time

    I have another email service that allows users to schedule draft emails to be sent at a specified date/time in the future. Once the draft is complete, the email is automatically sent at the future specified date/time, unless that draft email is deleted/replaced prior to the send date/time. The draft email can either reside in an existing "draft" folder or a separate "outbox" folder (as distinguished from "draft" that does not have a scheduled send date/time).

    I noticed a number of other similar postings, however, I wanted to provide this new posting to possibly emphasize…

  9. Remove dependance on google play services

    Protonmail android app is dependent on google play services and that is obviously against privacy and security.
    Users who removed/disable google play services or used vanilla "lineageos" without gapps cannot get the mail client work properly.
    Google play services collect every possible piece of info about the user; location, body sensors, application usage, and every other possible thing. So telling the use to enable/install google services you compromise his privacy and security by 3rd party app which is clearly against the idea if Protomail.

    I hope you can correct this and have no dependence on google at all.

  11. X-notifier Script for ProtonMail for Firefox?

    X-notifier is a Firefox plugin that alerts you to new email arrivals in multiple webmail accounts. The plugin already works with many popular webmail services. For new email services, an additional script must be made.

    This is the X-notifier Firefox plugin page: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/xnotifier/

    This is the current list of addon scripts: http://xnotifier.tobwithu.com/scripts.php

    This is the request page for a ProtonMail script to be added to X-notifier: http://xnotifier.tobwithu.com/dp/node/3407

    Could ProtonMail staff collaborate on creating a script?

    Or could someone reading this with the ability to create scripts help make one to add functionality for ProtonMail?

    This would also help those interested…

  14. Improve addressing with extension character; allow hyphen (-); use correct sender address.


    1. Add the use of a hyphen (-) as the extension character, in addition to plus (+). Reasoning is below.


    2. When a message arrives for example-bob@protonmail.com, replies sent by the recipient should automatically show example-bob@protonmail.com as both the header sender and the envelope sender. The reason should be obvious.


    Why hyphen (-) in addition to plus (+). The use of plus (+) tells people that you are using an extension, while the use of hyphen (-) makes the address look like an ordinary address.

    Many buggy websites reject email addresses that contain a plus.

    For additional reasoning see the original…

    "Accounts that are inactive for over 3 months may be automatically deleted."
    Please consider altering that policy. Three months is way too short a time!

    Why not 1-2 or more years instead of 3 months?

    "it must begin and end with alphanumerics."
    this is so arbitrary! it's an email address' local-part not a username..

  19. Browser Quick Login with PIN

    I would like a similar experience in the browser that we have with the mobile app. Set an expiration where the user can still unlock quickly with PIN.

    A trusted computer browser stores the main logon cookie with no expiration. But this cookie only has an encrypted blob that cannot access the mailbox alone. The 2nd cookie set to expire in X minutes/hours must be combined with a user supplied PIN, and that will decrypt the non-expiring main cookie blob, which logs the user back into the mailbox.
