"Delete Permanently" button in All Mail
Until the recent upgrade, one could delete emails permanently from the All Mail view. Since the upgrade, it appears you can only delete permanently from the Trash. I would like to have this feature back so I don't have to first move emails from the inbox to the trash before I delete them.
It would be useful to be able to search and/or filter the Trash folder by date, e.g. permanently deleting all Trashed items older than three months would be useful.

Yo, use iMacros an extention in chrome to make the deleting process automatic, while taking a lunch or something.

This was in the earlier versions of ProtonMail I have no clue why they removed it. And I'm pretty sure you had to enable it in the settings menu before it shows up so it didn't cause any harm.
ProtonMail wtf? Add it back!
Going through my mail and sorting everything now takes twice as long just because I don't have this one button.
Please add the Delete button back when looking at All Mail. Having to send to Trash and then deleting is painful

This is extremely important. It is very time consuming to delete to trash then to have to go to trash and delete a second time (via "Delete Permanently")... that's a poor design. I hope it wasn't to make users buy more storage. We need a "Delete Permanently" from any folder and a bulk delete as well (i.e. delete all mails in a particular folder, or delete oldest n emails (maybe even with date params)).

Since there is STILL no way to view multiple email Inboxes at once, and in the only workaround "All Mail" view Trash-marked messages clutter up the list, I used this button extensively. The new UI just went from 1 click to 4x(!) the clicks for the same operation: 1) click to Trash 2) click to go to Trash view 3) click on the message again 4) click on "Delete permanently"
