    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.

    Please make the subject line encrypted for all PGP emails and for the Non-Protonmail users encrypted emails.

    This is what SimpleLogin offers which is a email alias service that protect users from email spam from databreaches. I would like to see protonmail offer this even if it is for paid users only. Even if this means protonmail gets a few new domain names such as pmalias.com, protonmailalias.com, pmalias.me, etc and users cannot make accounts using these domain names but can make as many alias accounts as they want with these domain names.

    I understand you can already have "aliases" such as 5 email addresses for a paid account or use the "+" but this does not protect protonmail users for email spam if their online accounts get hacked.

    So if your protonmail username is john@protonmail.com you can create aliases such as...

    facebookfever@pmalias.com
    john232@pmalias.com

    And these aliases does not reveal the true owner of these email addresses if the website they have an account on has a databreach.
