ProtonMail must add a feature to set sub-folders into other folders; this is an indispensable feature for any top tier email provider ....
Not able to open app
I opened the account
I, too, am waiting for nested FOLDERS (NOT labels) (3 levels of sub-Folders is quite adequate for me) before I will be able to purchase and use ProtonMail. I want to NOT download emails to an email client, but to keep them in webmail. I understand limited online SPACE, which makes more sense than limited online folders, so you can manage HOW you use the space available to you. To me, Gmail and Yahoo are useless to me not just for security reasons, but they only offer "labels", not actual Folders. I now I use .GMX email, only because it has actual FOLDERS (NOT labels). I wouldn't be looking if it had a paid version, but it doesn't and it serves ads, lots of them, by myriad "partners."
I really like the idea of truly anonymous accounts, because hackers go from one connection, such as "recovery email" to another, compiling information, until they finally have enough for identity theft. Read the "privacy" statements all the way through - they will curl your toes!
When you do provide this feature, it would be very helpful to "BOLD", or otherwise highlight, folders (in the left panel) that contain unread messages, so you could filter incoming emails directly into appropriate folders and yet not lose sight of them.
Sorting folders by (DateSent or by From/Sender or by Sent-T0) by clicking on the column title is good, too.
I can't use ProtonMail without my email being kept online in nested folders (not just "labeled" - labels are next to useless for me).
An adequate number of message filters on Sender, Subject, and Sent-TO columns are also essential. 100 filters is quite adequate for me.
I'd really like to be able to use ProtonMail, but it's too expensive to NOT include these basic features. When do you expect that the beta be stable for general use?

I fully agree with this. flat folders Without them you have to scroll thru a long list of flat folder names on the left.
3 is better than none. Most things I only use 3 with e-mail how ever who knows. in E-mail I have never really need them.
The sub-folder feature is available in beta, yes.
But... It only allows for a three level sub folder structure. Compared to how most people use sub-folders in other mail systems, three levels isn't sufficient.
Please, ProtonMail team, do open up the sub-folder option for "limitless" levels.
Yes, and it is great! I have already started migrating many filters and mailing lists from other email providers now that sub-folders exist.
Now we just need to get more than 100 email filters active at once.
This feature is currently live in the beta version of Protonmail.

Seriously, how come that subfolders are still not available ?
As well as the following basic no-brainer features:
- separating first and last name to sort as one pleases > https://protonmail.uservoice.com/forums/284483-feedback/suggestions/10343397-ability-to-sort-contacts-by-last-name-first
- ability to drag and drop adresses between to, cc and bcc > https://protonmail.uservoice.com/forums/284483-feedback/suggestions/18525271-drag-drop-between-to-cc-and-bcc
- ability to add contacts to BCC directly from contacts > https://protonmail.uservoice.com/forums/284483-feedback/suggestions/11454069-add-to-bcc-from-contacts
Brother is quit terrible to install special for Linux. I am a expert but what Brother deliver is -6 note other have a package with one order and you can print. here i must select english but i am german, than i must 4-5 files down load and try to install with a lot work.
I fully support this request. I recently noticed that my folder/label structure of using labels to sort my folders is being done away with. I would use a label like ---Topic--- then the related folders sorted under it.
This feature would enable me to more fully migrate from other email accounts to ProtonMail. Currently I maintain two inboxes, but I prefer to maintain just one. Nested sub-folders are a requirement for me to make a full migration.
I and a lot of other people, we NEED the SUBFOLDERS feature.
WHEN this feature will be deliver ?
At this clear question, we want a clear answer with just a delivery date.
I too will terminate my membership if this shortcoming is not overcome within the year's timeframe.
Please, don't reply with your labels management.
Thank you in advance
I, too, bought the Protonmail application without giving a thought that hierarchical nesting would not be available. I have hundreds of folders in my previous email setup. Nesting allows me to quickly arrive at the folder I need. Your email program as it currently stands, is impossible to use for anyone who has a broad personal, commercial, and contact base. I was very, very disappointed to discover this omission. Like other Protonmail users, I too will terminate my membership if this shortcoming is not overcome within the year's timeframe.
Yes, I just bought it, was excited, but just discovered that sub-folders cannot be created. Weird!
If Proton will tell me that they will not have this feature soon, then I'll try to get my money back, and switch to hushmail.
Looking forward to Proton's reply..
I would really appreciate the sub-folder features! It is so important when using a secured mail for work! Could you please improve this?
In short: I hope you guys know why providers like Google are so massive in business? THEY DO IT RIGHT... Exept from a few other things, why I checked you guys out.
It is quite sad, that this feature is not already existing... So rudimentary. Thought I buy this Mail and it will work then, looks like I wasted 30€ on this (hope not, because basically I like it here). You're welcome for my money but if you want me to continue giving you money after that year --> Let me organize my Mails in a propper and standard way like any other mail. This feature can't be too hard to improve. Right?
PLEASE do that and I'll tell the world why they ALL should pay for a mail and switch! I don't have the time and muse to look for another mail-provider... So be nice to us :)

nested folders are a basic functionality of any mainstream email app. Protonmail will not be adopted in business until this is resolved. Current folder structure is too cumbersome
