package educational pricing, and if you wanted to go one or two steps further, have a below my nations poverty line but still deeply concerned about privacy package, and lastly the Greta Carbon Crumple pack, an improved free account nt where users "pay" by taking concrete action against climate change....
Also, not to point out the obvious but signing into hthis forum via google defeats the point of "proton privacy"
It's pretty annoying that there's no middle range between what free offers and the lowest price tier. I can't afford the bigger cost but I could if there were a $1/month offer.
Edu visionary plan!

Most services (i.e. Email and VPN) offer student discounted rates with a confirmable .edu university address. Being that students are poor, this will be a huge benefit for security-conscious students.
Offer multi-year plans at 3 and 5-year options with a significant rate discount the more years you purchase.
Proton Mail will be hailed as titans of Customer Service by offering those highly desirable plan options.
Hello, i´m student and want buy a suscription of protonmail. I have .edu account, can provide discount for universitiy students? Thanks.
As a student I would hope for a discount, since I do not have jobs and have very little pocket money. I do understand that it's unfair for others since student != poor, and there are many low income people who are paying for this service too.

Maybe if free is too much, just a discount. I'm a student myself and would like to use some of the paid features (Gmail import tool, bridge to use a desktop client, full contact details) but 50 euros a years are still a little too much while, for example, 15/20 euros sounds more reasonable.

This probably does not make sense for ProtonMail's business model as they already provide a free option. Usually businesses then to provide discounts our fee exemptions to students when all their services are charged which is not the case here. But you never know.
Get over yourselves, students. Pay for the services you want because those services have value and you're not entitled to free-load simply because you go to school.
A drastic discount (or maybe free?) for schools might actually be a good idea:
It would be bulk pricing for students, it would get the accustom to privacy / security, it would be temporary (since students rarely keep their email past graduation - even if offered by the school), and would allow for students to add additional email addresses (on other domains) to their user account (for a premium).
I'm confused about this, how exactly would it work?
Lower price or anything else for ISIC (Students Card) members maybe.
This makes no freaking sense. Even if you get it as a part of student developer pack, you don't control the DNS. So you can't really do anything. Already gmail gives free domain hosting for universities (this benefits a lot of schools that can't spend a lot of money to host their own infrastructure). This request simply makes no sense.
The collegiates have frittered away freedom and now they want some semblance of it back for free? No. Like it or not, children, services actually COST something to run, else your data is it.
There are exceptions to every rule, but this is not the market that can benefit the Protonmail mission.
why students? They are maybe the most likely to find alternatives solutions and way. They have access to university LAN and services. What about political dissident or journalists in third world dictatorship for example? Shouldn't this people be privileged if it is about giving free "premium" ? Why not a shoemaker? What are we speaking about? Students form yales than can pay 100 000 dollars a year to study? "Student" doesn't mean anything in modern world
no f***** way, they also can pay for it and I realy dont see why a student should be able to sent "1000 emails a day"...
dont they have to study?
"Custom domain options allow students to use their EDU domain email with proton mail's superior service"
No it wouldn't, as a university student doesn't have access to change the domain's MX settings.
There should be "Education" plan for students with includes:
- 2 GB Storage
- 1 or 2 Custom domain
- 5 Adresses (but only for custom domains)
- Unlimited sending (or 1000 Messages per day)
- 40 Folders / 60 Labels
- Custom Filters
- Catch-all email
- VPN: all countries, 2-4 devices, high or highest speed and MAYBE plus servers and secure core
Just pay for it. They also have costs when they let students in.
