    *sigh* yes, so agree. very disheartening.

    I already spent 2 votes on the similar https://protonmail.uservoice.com/forums/284483-protonmail/suggestions/40059430-do-not-use-google-recaptcha (where the comments broaden the scope from "merely" reCaptcha). But I will come back and spend my last vote here if it doesn't pick up speed!

    I'd give this more than 1 of my 5 remaining votes, were I not so sure it will be swiftly implemented by Proton!

    They're still using it, and it's still the default among various alternatives. Considering most newcomers are surely refugees from Gmail, this makes a really bad impression.

    Some comment from Proton is in order, here or on the more active https://protonmail.uservoice.com/forums/284483-protonmail/suggestions/40059430-do-not-use-google-recaptcha (which I already spent 2 votes on...). I *hate* reCaptcha, it is so maddening to know I am giving Google free AI training in exchange for being obstructed!

    PLEASE don't use any EVIL products in Yours. :) That absolutely includes Google, Facebook, Amazon, ... as others have said. As you of all organisations ought to know! At least there are alternatives to reCaptcha (now, if not formerly) for your sign-up. But to see it as an option is disheartening (and it is the default at the moment). Even seeing Facebook and Google icons under this input field feels ludicrous -- why not host your own comments/voting page? It's fairly trivial, and if you require users to be signed-in then you know you are getting suggestions from your user base, and it automatically prevents abuse. Keep up the good work, no irony intended! <3

    I need this (to send registration and password-change confirmation emails to my customers), and although it looks like it will be possible, the documentation is scattered. A helpful Proton Support person yesterday pointed me these two resources, and indeed the proton-bridge build from the git clone was very easy. I've yet to actually test it... What we're trying to do is not officially supported.

    Again, these two links are courtesy of official Proton support as of yesterday; I don't use docker or CentOS, personally, but it's going to help nevertheless:

    Doesn't the "This message contains third-party content [LOAD]" button protect one against this very thing?

    Definitely worth the tiny effort to implement, unless anyone can think of an objection strong enough to weigh against users' lives.

    If indeed you can delete them for Professional plan, you could upgrade, make the deletions, then downgrade? I think your credit is even retained through those contortions? Not 100% sure. (I downgraded my personal account to Free today for reasons explained in another comment, on https://protonmail.uservoice.com/forums/284483-protonmail/suggestions/42505153-i-have-multiple-protonmail-addresses-and-would-lik, and it seemed that credit remained on account, prorated at a fine granularity, days of use I think.) But I am not sure my suggestion would work in this case, only that it stands a good chance...

    Although, as one Anonymous commenter points out, Bridge has combined/separate addresses, but I believe it gives the client (that runs Bridge) access to all your addresses on Proton servers. This has necessitated me to downgrade my personal PM account, so that I could create a separate paid account for my custom domain. (I need to give my hosting server SMTP access in order to send registration and password-change confirmation emails to my customers. I do not care to give said server access to my personal email.) Can't afford two paid subscriptions, so I'm stuck with Free for my primary personal email. :( --> FEATURE REQUEST: separate credentials for each address for Bridge (at least as an option). I have no idea how difficult this would be to get right; probably quite difficult unfortunately...
