    K: Aliases are great for temporary addresses. Never give out the actual address, just give out the aliases. Then those aliases work as perfect temporary measures that could be deleted, I hope.

    This. It makes filtering out the e-mail by folders and/or tags much, much, much easier.

    I'm not sure how to send an e-mail with a new alias, though. Is that possible? If I remember correctly, when we receive an e-mail at an alias, we can reply to it and it goes out with that alias.

    I love Protonmail and wish our company could use it as well. However, we have one owner/user who absolutely refuses to use anything but gmail and so that kills it for us.

    Everyone else uses web access to their e-mail would be fine with Protonmail. The Protonmail interface is also considerably better than the service that we are currently using.

    I've thought about seeing if we use Protonmail's bridge and fetchmail to retrieve the e-mail and forward it on (I've never used fetchmail and am not entirely sure what all the capabilities are, but it looks to be fairly comprehensive).

    Even if that would work, it would have to be on a schedule of maybe every 5 minutes or so in order that the one user wouldn't have to wait too long when waiting for documents sent by a customer while on the telephone with that customer.

    If we could forward e-mail to gmail, it would be nobrainer for us to change to Protonmail for the company.

    I can easily imagine circumstances in which a user might not be able to access the account for months at a time.

    One of my brothers didn't use his e-mail (on another service) for many months because he was in a coma and then in a nursing home for rehabilitation. It was some months after he got back home that he was able to return to using e-mail.

    Another potential problem that could leave one unable to access e-mail for a while would be strokes or heart attacks.

    I do something like this on a company account hosted elsewhere. My primary username is a very obscure word. No email ever goes out with that username, but with the alias for the account.

    My main reason for doing this is so that if I start getting lots of spam at that address, I can set up and start using a new alias for any new e-mail and set the old alias to only accept e-mail to those specific users I expect to get e-mail from.

    I was here tosuggest the same thing. Some of us have always preferred bottom posting to top posting. It is especially useful for an email in which we are responding to individual points. Top posting only really works when you want to respond to one simple point.
