    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.

    If Proton Mail adopted Dark Mail DIME protocol soon, like other services such as Lavaboom of Germany, this issue would be resolved as DIME encrypts all data and the only snoopable information would only be the e-mail size. There's another feedback here:

    For copies of outgoing self-expiring encrypted e-mails that are in the sender's SENT folder, it would be useful to have a "READ" flag in the e-mail which will allow the sender of the encrypted e-mail to determine if the recipient has successfully decrypted and opened the e-mail at least once. This flag could be visible in the e-mail header pane of Proton Mail web mail so that the sender could check at a glance which encrypted e-mail has been opened / decrypted successfully, by simply glancing at the e-mail header pane of PM web mail.

    Identifying sender specific information in the PM encrypted message notification e-mail would reduce the privacy / security of PM. The solution to avoid non-PM users in treating the PM notification as spam or suspect e-mail would be to manually notify them outside of PM via regular e-mail that you have a new Proton e-mail address and explain the required procedure to decrypt the e-mail, plus supply them with their assigned password to use from thereon.

    Yes, PM web mail should allow user preferences for date format (yyyy.mm.dd or dd.mm.yyyy or mm.dd.yyyy) and also time format options for 12 or 24 hour format.
